Phase 2: Pinhoe Road and Exhibition Way – Jan and Feb 2020

The main construction work was started on Monday 6 January 2020 opposite Summerway and on the south side of Pinhoe Road.

Work in the north-east corner of the Pinhoe Road and Exhibition Way junction were completed and reopened to the public during the last week of February.

Traffic signals across Exhibition Way were removed and replaced by temporary traffic signals. These include signal-controlled pedestrians’ crossings and will remain operational until the new permanent signals are installed in mid-March.

Work on the west side of Exhibition Way started at the end of February and will continue through March. This section of work is to enable the carriageway to be realigned so that the improved cycle path can be constructed on the eastern side.

Work to the central island on Pinhoe Road, also started at the end of February which will enable the installation of the toucan crossing in this location. Work on this section is expected to finish at the beginning of March.

During the next two months, work will move along Exhibition Way, first on the west side then once the carriageway is realigned, on the east side.
