St James Retail Park - Bochum Parkway

Bochum Parkway Newsletter 8

25 August 2017

Newsletter No 8. Week commencing Monday 28th August. Weeks 14 and 15

This is the 8th 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 we have opened the new retail entrance to deliveries, enabling us to close Dyche Lane south bound carriageway whilst we work on the new service entrance off Dyche Lane.

We have started excavating for the new entrance filter lane.

Work to the roundabout is almost complete except for the surfacing of the additional roundabout lane.

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

We have made a start on altering the kerbs and traffic signals at the top of Dyche Lane

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.

Dyche Lane has been closed for the last week and will remain in place next week.

The next 2 weeks

Dyche Lane

Work will continue to alter the existing entrances on to site from Dyche Lane. These works will be completed by the end of the school summer holidays.

Retail Park entrance

We will continue to construct the new filter lane into the new retail park entrance.

Meadowhead Roundabout

The existing chevron signs will be moved back onto the roundabout

Norton Lane adjacent to Meadowhead Roundabout.

Works to this area will continue with tying in the new kerbs to the existing carriageway and placing stone ready for tarmac. This access will remain closed for the next few months. 

Central reservation opposite the site entrance

Works to provide the turning lane into the new site entrance will commence

Temporary Traffic Management likely to impact traffic

The south bound carriageway of Dyche Lane will remain closed for one more week.

The south bound carriageway of Dyche Lane will remain closed for one more week but will be open in time for the start of the new school term Monday 4th September. The northbound carriageway of Dyche Lane will remain open. Diversions for traffic will be signposted. Routes for pedestrians using Dyche Lane will be maintained. Buses travelling south down Dyche Lane will be re routed. 

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. 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.
