Work will begin next week to lay the final road surface on the road between Ridgeway to Icen Lane. Although this covers nearly two miles and three lanes, our contractors, Hanson are confident this work will take just over a week to complete, weather permitting.
The new road surface has been specifically designed to reduce road noise and the spray coming from vehicles in wet weather. This means visibility will be better for drivers, and they will have more grip on the road.
Skanska have cleaned the surface of the road ready for the surfacing work to begin. They’re continuing to progress the drainage work at Jurassic and Bincombe Bumps roundabout and further work is being undertaken to install safety barriers and complete the verges.
