We have now diverted the traffic onto the new roundabout. This is still being controlled with the use of temporary traffic signals. The traffic signals are in place to ensure that the area is safe for both the public and our workforce.
Following the Christmas break, we will be continuing with the works on what was the old carriageway. This will include realigning and replacing of the old kerb lines, installation of the final section of culvert units and service diversions.
We apologise for any inconvenience or delays that you may experience during these works.
We have now installed the majority of the offline kerbs and are installing the edgings to form the footways. This is to enable the road and footways to have bituminous material added at the same time, to make it safe for everybody when the traffic management is adjusted to use the newly constructed carriageway.
The new culvert that crosses Evesham Road is now installed to the halfway point of Evesham Road. The services will now need to be installed onto the top of the new sections of culvert. This will enable us to install the northern half of culvert because currently the existing services are going to clash with the proposed units.
There are no imminent changes being proposed to the traffic management.
As always, we apologise for any inconvenience that our works are causing.
We are making good progress with the off-line works that do not directly affect the main B439 Evesham Road. This includes the installation of the first culvert, the roundabout and the new leg that ties in with Luddington Lane. We will shortly be proceeding with the second culvert unit which extends across Evesham Road. Following on from this, the service diversions which are pivotal to the programme of works will commence.
