STOP PRESS: We have been advised that due to the very poor weather forecast for this weekend (3 October the road closure and resurfacing work will not be going ahead. We will update you when a new date has been decided.
We have been sent a copy of a letter sent from Griffiths Civil Engineering and Construction, to local residents.
The letter refers to the resurfacing work currently underway at the junction - and describes how this work will intensify this weekend and next. They will also be working through the night, up to 5.00am, during the week commencing 5 October.
As the letter states, there will be some noise disruption during those hours, for those living nearby.
Temporary traffic lights will be in place during the work.
It looks, therefore, as if the construction of the new junction is coming to an end - following which we will have traffic lights to navigate, rather than a roundabout.
We will, of course, be interested to see how this affects traffic movement at the junction.
