Work is progressing well and over the weekend we moved into the next phase of works which see’s us working on the corner of Roosevelt Drive/Warneford Lane and also Gipsy Lane/Old Road.This switch happened overnight on Saturday when traffic was at its lightest. You can see the current arrangements on the map below.
Four way lights
Although the working areas have changed location the setup of the site in terms of traffic has remained largely the same. The traffic continues to be controlled under four-way traffic lights and will be manually controlled through the hours of 7am and 7pm.
Since the project started we have removed the existing kerbs, widened the footway/cycleway, installed new drainage, diverted a gas main and constructed the new kerb layout. Over the last week we have surfaced the new footway/cycleway on the south side of Old Road and on the corner of Warneford Lane and Gipsy Lane.
More work in the New Year
We will be carrying out similar work in the next phase. Work will continue in the New Year with the construction of the new pedestrian crossing islands, and in February we plan to surface the carriageway of the junction. This surfacing will take place over night between the hours of 7pm and 6am when traffic is as its lightest. More information on dates will be given early January.
The site will close on Friday 23 December 2016 and will re-open on Tuesday 3 January 2017. Traffic management will remain in place over a reduced area during the Christmas period to ensure the site remains safe for the public.
We will be carrying out regular traffic management inspections over the course of the holiday period, however if you see anything unsafe please call the non-emergency police number 101 and they will inform us immediately.
