Traffic management

To ensure the safety of the construction workers and road users throughout the duration of the contract, the work site will be protected using a variety of traffic management techniques such as temporary traffic signals, lane closures and footway diversions.

It will also be necessary to temporarily close some roads during the construction period. See the E4 Cycle Route roadworks page for information on road closures, roadworks and diversions related to the scheme.
