Traffic notice for the week commencing 21 April 2024

Well maintained roads are an important part of keeping people safe. While we aim to do this work with as little disruption as possible, we know that roadworks can be inconvenient. Thanks for your patience and understanding while we do this important work.

Please drive carefully through work sites and stick to the temporary speed limits. As always, we will be doing our best to minimise effects of these works on the public as much as we can.

If you have any queries about these works, please contact our project team:
