Moody Lane improvements update

The third phase of works on Moody Lane will begin on Monday 14 October.

During the final stages of work, the majority of the carriageway on Moody Lane will be resurfaced between the junctions of Woad Lane and Gilbey Road.

To reduce disruption to road users and allow the works to be completed safely, an overnight road closure will be in place from 7pm to 6am for five nights from Monday.

The section of Moody Lane between the old Huntsman Tioxide site and Gilbey Road roundabout will not be resurfaced during the overnight closure due to additional drainage works required.

To allow the drainage improvements to be carried out, a full 24-hour road closure will be in place starting on Monday 21 October for two weeks.

Access to businesses, emergency access and the existing footway will be maintained throughout the closures.

Advanced warning signs and signed diversion routes will be put in place during the closures.

Works completed so far during this phase include:

  • Removal of the disused rail tracks and crossing signals on Moody Lane to allow for the existing footpath to be widened and incorporate a shared use footway and cycleway;
  • Improvements to existing drainage systems;
  • Improvements to street lighting.

Phase 3 works are set to be completed on Friday 1 November.

From Monday 4 November, the next phase of works (phase 4) will start on Gilbey Road between the level crossing and Moody Lane roundabout.

These works are expected to take three weeks to complete. During this phase, the carriageway will be resurfaced and the roundabout at the junction of Moody Lane and Gilbey Road upgraded.

To allow these works to be completed, a full 24-hour road closure will be in place between the Gilbey Road level crossing and the Moody Lane roundabout.

Temporary traffic signals will also be in place on Moody Lane to allow the roundabout upgrades to be safely completed.

Access to Gilbey Road will be maintained throughout the closure via Pyewipe roundabout. Moody Lane will also remain open during this phase.

Advanced warning signs and signed diversion routes will be put in place during the closure.

The overall project is progressing well and will see a number of improvements for those working in the area, including improved travel to work times and safer options for sustainable travel such as cycling and walking.
