Highway works are due to start in May 2018. The programme will be delivered in phases, with their timing being dependent on:

  • the timing of the developer led and funded schemes;
  • minimising travel disruption;
  • funding availability required to deliver the Council led schemes; and
  • design and construction challenges that may arise during programme delivery.

Construction schedule

The first three schemes are all developer led and funded – the indicative timescale for these schemes is:
