About the works

Preparations are being made to upgrade the uncontrolled crossing point located on Roman Road south of the junction with Thoby Lane to a signalised pedestrian crossing.

Works are due to start on Thursday 22 July 2021 and expected to take approximately five weeks to complete.

The purpose of the scheme is to provide a safe crossing point that is more suitable to the high pedestrian footfall in this area.

Activities will include installing cable ducts under the carriageway and pavements as well as installing equipment above ground.  

How it will affect you

The majority of the works will be carried out during the day with traffic managed by a contraflow and temporary two-way traffic lights in place to provide a safe working area while operatives are on site.

We currently anticipate that a limited number of full road closures on Roman Road will be required overnight to allow work to take place across the carriageway.

Overnight road closures have been provisionally booked for the following dates:
