Work to provide a right-turn lane and pedestrian crossing point on the A616/Park Lane junction to improve safety at the junction. The scheme also includes widening of the carriageway, relocation of safety barrier, lighting and speed camera, drainage improvement, carriageway resurfacing, building a new footway and renewal of traffic signs and road markings.
Temporary traffic management and diversions
Most of the work will use a combination of 24/7 lane closures with traffic lights, narrow lanes and 40mph speed limit near the junction. For some aspects of the work the A616 will be fully closed between Newton Chamber and Westwood roundabout overnight with clearly signed diversion routes in place.
