Progress report

The utility works are now complete and the project is the final stages of construction. We are currently undertaking works including road construction, kerbing and traffic signal installation.

What next?

Our remaining work includes carriageway surfacing, traffic signal installation and commissioning, signing, footway upgrades and landscaping works. We plan to complete the work in Autumn 2016, at which point the new roundabout layout will be open for public use.

Why we need this scheme

The roundabout currently suffers from congestion at peak times, resulting in delays.

Aims

The extra lane will increase capacity. Reconfiguring the traffic signals will improve how traffic flows through the roundabout. This will help to reduce congestion and delays. We are also providing new lane markings and signs to improve safety.
