Update to Littlefield Lane/Dudley Street traffic signal improvement works

10:37 am, Wednesday, 30th March 2022 - 1 year ago


Works currently taking place for Littlefield Lane’s traffic signal improvements have been altered.

Traffic management which has been in place will be removed, and Littlefield Lane will fully reopen between Wednesday 30 March and Sunday 3 April to benefit those who use the road, while work is not being carried out on site.

Traffic management will return to the site between Monday 4 April and Friday 8 April, whilst the remaining phase one works are completed.

This will include the previous 24-hour three-way temporary traffic signals in place at the Littlefield Lane, A1136 Cromwell Road / Dudley Street junction, and Littlefield Lane (between Dudley Street and Prince’s Avenue) will be closed for the duration. Access will be maintained to Cromwell Avenue via the Chantry Lane / Littlefield Lane junction with signed diversion route.  

Between 7:30am and 6pm on Monday 4 April 2022, Littlefield Lane will be closed for carriageway resurfacing and road marking works to be completed.

The second phase, currently scheduled to be completed in the summer, will include the removal of the existing traffic signal equipment which is at the end of its serviceable life. New traffic signals will be installed, which will improve traffic flow and reduce journey times at the junction. Traffic management for this part of the works will be confirmed nearer to the time.

The national shortage of electronic equipment means the scheme will be delivered in two phases.

The council, EQUANS, and contractor PBS Construction (NE) Ltd would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused by these essential works.
