Work is due to start on 3rd January 2023 and is scheduled for completion by End May 2023

Please note that all our planned works are subject to change due to weather conditions, significant events or unforeseen circumstances.

How will the work affect traffic?
To keep our programme for these works as short as possible and to minimise disruption to the local community, residents, businesses and road users, we will work as follows:

Street lighting, signs and traffic signals
• Monday to Friday, 8pm to 6am, Full overnight closures of the slip road, ring management of the roundabout gyratory and lane closures. Only one slip road to be closed at any one time.
Waterproofing and bridge joint
• Friday 8pm to Monday 6am, Full weekend closure of the bridge deck. Only one bridge deck to be closed at one time.

During these full road closures, we will put in place fully signed diversion routes which have been agreed with the local authority.

Please note that whilst carrying out waterproofing and structural repair work on the bridge, there will be NO access for any vehicles including emergency services during that time.

If you’d like more information about the different phases of our work or a copy of the diversion route drawings, please feel free to get in touch with us.

We will make sure that access to businesses and residences is maintained wherever possible. We will also have a dedicated Public Liaison Officer on hand to answer any questions.
