St James Retail Park - Bochum Parkway

Bochum Parkway Newsletter No 2

09 June 2017

Newsletter No 2. Week commencing Monday 12th June. Weeks 3 and 4

This is the 2nd edition of the newsletter that will keep you up to date with the progress of the road works on Bochum Parkway.

During the first 2 weeks we've investigated the old sub way structure within the central reservation to see if it will impact the design of the new carriageway filter lane into the development.

We have laid down a temporary footpath to maintain a route for pedestrians while we carry out the works to the new entrance into site.

Last Sunday we commenced works on the existing Meadowhead Roundabout to create an additional carriageway lane.


The next 2 weeks

Retail Park entrance

We will continue to form the new entrance into site behind the temporary footpath.
The deep drainage diversion on the boundary of the development site will be completed.

Meadowhead Roundabout

Due to Northern Powergrid carrying out diversion works on Bochum Parkway there will be no works to the roundabout this Sunday 11th but these works will recommence Sunday 18th June

Temporary Traffic Management likely to impact traffic

Sunday lane closures on Bochum Parkway

On Sunday 11th June there will be lane closures, both east bound and west bound, on Bochum Parkway. This is to enable Northern Powergrid to complete their duct crossings across the highway.

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

On Sunday 18th June, 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.
