To ensure the safety of the construction workers and road users throughout the duration of the contract, the work site will be protected using a variety of traffic management techniques. The majority of the construction works will be undertaken during the daytime, under a basic traffic management layout. A basic traffic management layout is one that does not utilise any form of traffic control, such as Stop and Go or traffic signals, and therefore traffic flows will be relatively unaffected for the majority of the time.
However, at times during the contract, it will be necessary to utilise other forms of traffic control, such as traffic signals, and Stop and Go with a convoy vehicle. In addition, there will be times when we need to close Cumberland Way, Hollow Lane and Pilton Lane to ensure the safety of the construction worker and road users.
The table below summarises the road closures required under the contract, as well as providing some basic information about diversion routes and access arrangements.
