This is the 9th edition of the newsletter that will keep you up to date with the progress of the road works on Bochum Parkway.
Good progress has been made in all areas these past 2 weeks.

Works to this area will continue with the footpath and pedestrian crossing paving to the rear of the kerbs and the carriageway made ready for surfacing in week commencing 25th September. This access will remain closed for the next few months.
Works to provide the turning lane into the new site entrance will continue with the installation of new drainage connections and kerbs.
Works to provide the third lane approaching the roundabout will continue with the installation of new drainage connections and kerbs.
Lane closures will be in place during weekdays from 9.30am to 4.00pm. 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.
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.
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.
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.
