How likely are delays to traffic during construction of the scheme?

The construction works have been carefully planned to reduce the need for temporary traffic signals and to minimise the disruption to traffic.

During construction, traffic lanes on Cumberland Way will be narrowed and a temporary speed limit imposed to protect the public and workforce.

Some works will require traffic signals, and these will be undertaken during off-peak hours when traffic flows will be lower.

On a small number of occasions, it will be necessary to close Cumberland Way to through traffic. This will be done overnight, and diversion routes will be clearly signed.
