Temporary Traffic Management likely to impact traffic

Night Work - one week from Monday 6th November.
Work will be taking place at night for 5 nights commencing Monday 6th November. Ducts are required to be installed across Bochum Parkway adjacent to Meadowhead Roundabout. This requires closing a lane to the roundabout which will take place at night to reduce the affect on the traffic. All roads in all directions will remain open.
No carriageway lane closures during the day - one week from Monday 6th November
Due to our gangs working at night, they cannot also work during the day.

Closure of the pedestrian crossing adjacent to Meadowhead Roundabout.
The pedestrian crossing will remain closed. Pedestrians wishing to cross the road at this point are directed to the next traffic signal crossing opposite Dyche Lane. See below.
Please advise your children walking to school that this crossing is closed and will remain closed until the completion of the works and to use the alternative crossing.

Closure of the western access to Norton Lane off Bochum Parkway.
This access will remain closed full time for the next few months. Vehicular access to Norton Lane can by made by using the eastern Norton Lane access off Bochum Parkway. We appreciate that this will cause some inconvenience to those living on Norton Lane. 

Safety for children and the wider public

We acknowledge that construction sites can be attractive places for children.
Please be assured that once underway, the different areas of works will be securely fenced at all times to ensure the safety of the public. Deep excavations within our works, for drainage for example, will have further fencing erected around them.

Please be aware of slow moving plant and wagons making deliveries and accessing different areas of the site from the live carriageway.

Please be mindful of the speed limit of 40 mph when driving through the works.
