This safety improvement scheme is part of a wider package of improvement work at this junction. A second phase to tackle congestion on the eastbound carriageway will take place next year.
As part of this scheme we’re improving road signage on the westbound carriageway and slip roads and cutting back vegetation to improve visibility. We’re also adding a temporary prohibited right turn from the link road into Manor Heath for a trial period. If this is deemed to be successful it will be made permanent.
We’ll need to use a variety of traffic management layouts to carry out the work including the closure of the westbound slip roads and the Manor Heath junction, as well as lane closures on the A64. During any road closure signed diversions using the A64 and adjacent local roads will be in place.
The work will be carried out using overnight closures.
