Work to begin on King Street Lane for Winnersh Relief Road phase 1

Work to begin on King Street Lane for Winnersh Relief Road phase 1

16 August 2017
Roadworks

Drivers and pedestrians on King Street Lane and Longdon Road will see work starting this month on part of the new junction that is a component of the Winnersh Relief Road project.

 

 

The work on the new traffic light junction will begin on August 29, and last for about 19 weeks. It should  have minimal impact on drivers in the initial stages (approximately the first five weeks) as the work will not be on the carriageway itself and therefore no traffic management is needed. .

 

As the work progresses however, there will be a single lane closure with traffic lights, and perhaps full closure for surfacing. No traffic management will be used on the carriageway during morning and evening rush hours (7 to 9.30am and 3.30 to 6.30pm Monday to Friday) unless an application to vary has been issued. Any such change would be advertised in advance.

 

Once the new junction at King Street Lane is completed, work will begin on a new traffic light junction at Lower Earley Way North that is also part of the Winnersh Relief Road project.

 

This work is also expected to take about 19 weeks. This work will avoid lane closures as much as possible, but again for resurfacing will need a single lane closure with traffic lights and possibly full closure, which would be advertised in advance. . Again, no traffic management will be used on the carriageway during  rush hours(as above) ) unless an application to vary has been issued. Any such change would be advertised in advance.

 

Wokingham Borough Council’s contractor for this work  is Hope and Clay Ltd and any queries about onsite issues should be first directed to them by phone; (07831) 811 910 or email: admin@hopeandclay.com
