We will update this page as the information becomes available. If you have any questions relating to the work, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Clarendon Road: major works, January to October 2020
The work involves a full reconstruction of the road, reducing its width in order to widen the footpaths, create more public space and reduce traffic speeds. It will also involve the creation of a new drainage network, utilities, crossings, lighting, signal infrastructure and raised tables for better disabled access.
Location of works: The first phase of the improvement scheme will be between Beechen Grove and St Johns Rd
TRAFFIC and PEDESTRIANS
Clarendon Road becomes one-way northbound. Access to Clarendon Road will be from Beechen Grove or Clarendon Road (south side). Two-way traffic operation will remain in place north of St John’s Road. There may be the occasional necessity to close the road, but this would be limited to night-time only
Traffic diversion via St Johns Road, Woodford Road, Station Road, St Albans Road and the ring road
Speed limited to 20 on Clarendon Road
