Works to install a new fit-for-purpose roundabout to improve traffic flow and reduce congestion at the junction started in February this year and will now progress onto the next phase of works.
This phase of work will see a full road closure in place on Cambridge Road, between the current mini-roundabout and Grange Primary School, and will be carried out by PBS Construction.
The closure will be in place from Thursday 3 September until Friday 18 December and will allow for works to take place on Cambridge Road.
The full closure of the road is required to undertake works to underground utility equipment which the providers have identified since the scheme started construction.
In parallel to the works on Cambridge Road, the construction of the new roundabout is continuing off the carriageway and the temporary footpath and crossing point will remain in place during this time.
Closing the road completely will enable the team on the ground to make the required changes as quickly and safely as possible, while also allowing the acceleration of the remaining civil engineering works.
Access to properties, businesses and a pedestrian route will be maintained during the closure on Cambridge Road.
When the roundabout construction is completed the remaining works will include realignment of the existing roads to meet the new roundabout and final landscaping works.
The new roundabout will replace the existing mini roundabout at the junction of Little Coates Road and Cambridge Road, which has long been a pinch-point for traffic delays during busy times of the day.

The improvements are being managed and overseen by the council’s regeneration partner, ENGIE.
