St James Retail Park - Bochum Parkway

Bochum Parkway Newsletter 4

30 June 2017

Newsletter No 4. Week commencing Monday 3rd July. Weeks 6 and 7

This is the 4th edition of the newsletter that will keep you up to date with the progress of the road works on Bochum Parkway.

During the last week we have continued our work to form the new site entrance laying kerbs and installing ducts for the power cable diversion. We've also been preparing the adjacent footpath for stone to be placed next week.

The works to Meadowhead roundabout continues every Sunday which makes progress in this area seemingly very slow.

We have closed off the western Norton Lane Access and have commenced work to reconstruct this section of carriageway and install new drainage.

The next 2 weeks

Retail Park entrance

We will be constructing the new footpath and installing the gullies to the entrance.

Meadowhead Roundabout

Works to widen the existing carriageway around the roundabout will continue this Sunday and following Sundays. We'll be installing the new drainage kerbs and carrying out alterations to the existing drainage scheme. The existing chevron signs will be relocated to behind the new kerb line.

Norton Lane adjacent to Meadowhead Roundabout.

Works to this area will continue with drainage installation and carriageway construction. This access will remain closed for the next few months. 

Temporary Traffic Management likely to impact traffic

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. Access to the pedestrian crossing adjacent to Meadowhead Roundabout will be maintained.

Bochum Parkway

Towards the end of next week a lane closure will be in operation for a few hours one evening after 7pm on Bochum Parkway eastbound adjacent to Meadowhead roundabout. This is to enable us to complete our drainage connections adjacent to the live carriageway.

Sunday lane closures on Meadowhead Roundabout and the approaches to Meadowhead Roundabout

On Sunday 2nd July and Sunday 9th July there will be lane closures in place in the vicinity of the roundabout. This is to enable works adjacent to the live carriageway to be carried out safely. This is likely to impact the traffic using Bochum Parkway and the surrounding areas. All pedestrian crossings will operate as normal.

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.
