St James Retail Park - Bochum Parkway

Bochum Parkway Newsletter 7

11 August 2017

Newsletter No 7. Week commencing Monday 14th August. Weeks 12 and 13

This is the 7th edition of the newsletter that will keep you up to date with the progress of the road works on Bochum Parkway.

During the last 2 weeks pedestrians walking past the retail park entrance have been diverted back onto the reconstructed footpaths as we commence works to tie in the carriageway to the new retail park site entrance.

Works continue at the western entrance to Norton Lane adjacent to Meadowhead Roundabout to widen the carriageway.

New carriageway construction in the middle of the roundabout has continued all this week.
We have continued the laying of ducts to the central reservations.

Lane closures to Bochum Parkway have been in operation every day to provide safe areas of work for our operatives as they work alongside the live carriageway.

Weekday lane closures on Bochum Parkway

Lane closures will be in place during weekdays from 9am to 4.30pm. The affected roads will remain open in all directions. 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. Please allow extra time for your journeys through the area or seek alternative routes.

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

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.
