Phase 2: Pinhoe Road and Exhibition Way – March and April 2020

The work at the Pinhoe Road and Exhibition Way junction were completed (except for the surfacing).

The temporary signals were removed, and the new permanent signals were switched on in the middle of March. As the work on Exhibition Way is not complete, the traffic signals are currently not working at their optimum. Once the junction has been resurfaced, the operations of the traffic signals will be optimised.

Work has started on both sides of Exhibition Way and will move further north towards Pinbrook Road as the scheme progresses.

In the next two months, and subject to availability of materials, it is planned that work on the west side of Exhibition Way will be completed to allow the work on the east side of Exhibition Way between Aldi and Pinbrook Road to start. Work will also start on the south side of Pinhoe Road, to the east of Bakers Way.

The full road closures of Pinhoe Road and Exhibition Way, including the side roads Pinbrook Road, Aldi junction and Bakers Way, are currently planned to start the first week of June for three weeks. These closures will be undertaken at night time only between 7:00 pm and 6:00 am and a signed diversion route will be provided where possible.

This work is dependent on surfacing materials which are not currently available because batching plants are not open.
