Vegetation clearance to footways and verges

This work is complete.

Why do we have to close the road?

Traffic management is needed due to the nature of the work and for the safety of the public. The majority of the work will be done under lane closures to maintain the road open for as long as possible.

How is pedestrian traffic being handled?

There will be signs to use alternative routes. The footways will be closed and reopened as soon as possible, once work is complete, in sequence over the three weeks, working from Station road junction towards the south to the Ashprington junction.
