A38 Barton-under-Needwood: lighting upgrade

Guy Harrington

Upgrading the street lighting on the A38 central reserve near to Barton-under-Needwood.

Road users will benefit from better visibility, increasing safety on this stretch of road, particularly at night.

To minimise disruption, we’ll carry out this work overnight, from 9pm to 5.30am, when traffic levels are lower.

We’ll carry out the majority of the work by closing lane 2 on the A38 overnight. We may also need to close lane 1 on the northbound carriageway.

For some of the work, we’ll need to close the northbound carriageway completely overnight. We’ll place signs notifying you in advance of when this will be. During the closure, we’ll put in place clearly signed diversion routes.

We’ll keep the carriageway open as usual during the day.
