Roadworks postponed

The A458 Harley Bank road closure scheduled for 24th March was postponed at very short notice for contractual reasons.

The signage element of the scheme was as a result of the fatal road accident which occurred in 2012. The signage works are still to be carried out this spring, using temporary traffic signals.

I have impressed upon the highways engineers that the remaining road surfacing works should be organised after the summer period. This is because of the disruption caused by a closure of the A458, and the impact that it may have on the local economy.

Meanwhile, the A4169 Sheinton Street, near Station Road, may have to be closed in the coming weeks for urgent sewer replacement works. Unfortunately the date has yet to be determined, so watch out for advisory signs.
