THERE will be lane closures on the A46 Stoneleigh Junction to allow the new bridge deck to be moved into place.
The work is part of the £38 million Stoneleigh Junction Improvement Scheme.
Between January 15 and 17 the A46 northbound will be reduced to one lane and lane three of the A46 southbound will be closed.
This is to enable the delivery of the specialist equipment to move the A46 bridge deck into place.
And between Friday January 20 and Sunday January 22 the A46 mainline will be reduced to one lane in each direction and the Stoneleigh Road closed over the A46 to enable the new bridge deck to be moved into place.
These measures will be well-signposted with diversion routes in place throughout.
The overall aim of the Stoneleigh Junction scheme is to reduce the regular delays and queueing traffic, improve road safety for all users and ensure the junction has the capacity that will be required to meet future growth in the sub-region.
The Stoneleigh Junction Scheme is being funded by Warwickshire County Council, The Department for Transport, the West Midlands Combined Authority with developer contributions from the University of Warwick and Whitley South Works through the Coventry & Warwickshire Development Partnership.
WCC transport and highways spokesman Coun Wallace Redford said: “These lane closures are essential in order to allow for delivery and installation of the bridge deck, which forms part of the Stoneleigh Junction Improvement Scheme.
“We would like to sincerely thank local residents for their continued patience with these essential developments to the junction, which forms part of this council’s commitment to ensuring that residents are supported through excellent transport infrastructure.”
