Update regarding Rhubarb Bridge roadworks

Update: Wednesday 27 February 2019

We can now confirm that the Traffic Management on the initial phase of works at the Junction 18 roundabout have been changed back to two lanes operating to traffic during peak times to help alleviate congestion.

Work will now be carried out during off-peak hours (9.30am - 3.30pm) which will see one lane open to traffic.

We would still advise motorists to plan journeys in advance, seek alternative routes where possible and look out for travel updates through local media.

We can confirm that the Traffic Management on the initial phase of works at the Junction 18 roundabout have been changed, with only one lane available for through traffic and two lanes closed off for working.

The change has been made for the safety of the workforce due to a number of incidents while two live lanes traffic lanes were previously running alongside the works.

Our contractor is working to get this phase completed as quickly, efficiently and safely as possible and working hours on site have been extended to 7.30am to 6/6.30pm.

We are constantly reviewing the traffic management set up on site and where appropriate will make adjustments to the current layout to make traffic flows better.

In the meantime, we would advise motorists to plan journeys in advance, seek alternative routes where possible and look out for travel updates through local media.
