The Planned works are being carried out next week by Kier Highways on behalf of Highways England. They will be using a blockade system to manage the local area and to ensure our work is completed quicker.
What are Blockades?
Weshall be carrying out multiple jobs under the full closures (blockades) and this will cause greater efficiency by not needing to close the road a number of times at different times for different works to be carried out. We feel that by carrying out such a blockade in this instance, it will mean the local community and the travelling public will not need
multiple closures over a short period of time causing more disruption.
The various kind of work being carried out throughout the blockade include the following;
however, this list is not exhaustive: –
Vegetation & grass cutting
Sign & marker post cleaning
Safety fence inspection and repair works
Gully and catch-pit clearing to improve drainage
Sweeping the carriageway
We are also inviting other parties into the closures to enable a joined-up approach so that they work together to ensure a safe, collaborative and effective working practice. We are confident that customers will see benefit from this joined up way of dealing with essential works in order to minimise disruption to customers.
This part of the network will be closed over 5 nights. Please see below for a comprehensive list of closures and diversion routes.
