Working at night and at weekends means that there is less disruption for the public and our work can be completed quickly and efficiently. Whilst some of this work is noisy, we will complete these operations first and keep vehicle movement to a minimum.

When programming works we consider the impact on all road users and plan our works to minimise disruption. We do understand that the closure will be inconvenient but works can only be completed safely and efficiently with this in place. We hope any inconvenience will be tolerated for the duration of the works, as this scheme will significantly improve this route.

Access arrangements

To maintain the health and safety of the workforce and the public the works will be carried out under a road closure with a diversion route in place. The diversion route can be viewed on the national roadworks website. The red line shows the extent of the closure and the blue line shows the diversion route.

Pedestrian and cyclists access will be maintained at all times. Pedestrian marshals will be on site to assist residents.
