Bakers Lane - progress update

The third phase of footway and carriageway reconstruction work is nearing completion. UKPN have been on site connecting the new lighting columns and 120 metres of footway resurfacing has been completed. Due to heavy rainfall some footway resurfacing was postponed, we anticipate this will be completed by Friday 29 January 2021.

There will be a short break in the works prior to the fourth and final stage commencing. Between 1 and 3 February 2021 there will be no activity on site and no traffic management restrictions however, please drive cautiously through the area as there will be no road markings and signage will be in place.

As part of the final phase of reconstruction works, carriageway resurfacing on Bakers Lane is scheduled to take place from Thursday 4 February to Saturday 6 February 2021. In order to carry out these works in a safe manner a road closure will be required during this time.

During the resurfacing works unfortunately there will be access restrictions for local residents however, the on-site team will be available to provide guidance on parking for those who are affected.

Advance warning signs will be in place advertising the road closure.

Please be aware that dates may be subject to change at short notice if the works are hampered by poor weather or if unexpected issues arise.
