Notice of works - A6 roundabout

This is an update on the new A6 roundabout, and importantly an update on the traffic management required to complete the access to the new Woodland Valley estate

  1. Jan 11th – Temporary two way nights on the southern side of the new roundabout – 5 days to complete the tie in and road cambers. (Manual control during busy periods). These works are to connect the new road to the old road at the southern end, so that the traffic can get up to the new roundabout.
  1. Jan 16th 00:00am to 06:00am (overnight road closure) – A6 closure to adjust safety barriers to higher elevation (new road alignment), white lining so the traffic flow can be diverted to the new road.
  1. Jan 16th – Traffic management and two way lights set up for approx. 8 weeks. Programmed works are for 6 weeks so we are aiming for an earlier completion. (Manual control during busy periods). The plan for this is attached, to the south of the roundabout it will be two way traffic, with the north of the roundabout where the temporary signals are. You may have seen tarmacking works happening to allow for this, this week.
  1. Early March, road fully open under existing temp 30mph limit and localised traffic management works to completion. At this point we will open up the roundabout for our construction traffic, so no more lorries etc through the towns heading to our development.
