Holt Lane – start of works w/c 28 October

I have received an update on the highways work now due to take place starting tomorrow:

Works at Holt Lane have been delayed but will proceed as planned next week. The work comprises: 

•             Installation of traffic signals

•             Introduction of a bus stop layby opposite BP (where the bus shelter currently is)

•             Moving back of the bus shelter to accommodate the new layby

•             Ducting of the traffic signals to the pedestrian crossing

•             Resurfacing works

•             Realignment of the footpaths to accommodate the widening of the carriageway

•             Cutting of new loops within the carriageway for traffic signals

•             Movement and replacement of gullies to accommodate the crossing for the required drainage 

Construction will take place Monday to Friday, under temporary traffic signals at the junction of Holt Lane and the A660. During resurfacing activities convoy management will be deployed to escort public vehicles safely past the work area. 

The hours of work will be 7:30am to 3:30pm, with works within the carriageway commencing at 9:30am to minimise traffic disruption. Given the nature of the works there is likely to be disruption but we are working hard with the contractor to ensure this is kept to a minimum.”
