Although the main carriageway has been opened, work is continuing to finish other areas of the scheme.
The park and ride is programmed to be open during late May, as will the remaining cycleway links in the Lodmoor area.
Work is continuing on the new Littlemoor Road. The ‘off-line’ sections of road, which don’t currently have any traffic running on them, will be finished during May.
Work will then start on the complicated tie-in where the new road crosses the existing road near to Gould’s Garden Centre. It is likely that extensive traffic management will be needed to complete this small joining section.
The new cycleways along Littlemoor Road will be finished as the adjacent road work is completed. All the Littlemoor Road works should be finished by the end of July.
The Bincombe junction is programmed to open during July, as is the section of cycleway between the old hairpin bend and the Ridgeway bridge.
During the autumn any outstanding planting will be finished.
