Hermitage Lane improvement scheme

This scheme will ease the current congestion at the entrance of the retail park in Hermitage Lane.

The scheme has created a longer, dedicated lane for vehicles turning right into the retail park, helping the traffic flow of those heading south through the junction.

The scheme included:

  • a dedicated left-hand lane for northbound traffic turning right into the retail park
  • removal of existing traffic islands to allow traffic to move while construction is underway.

This improvement scheme was needed to ease the current congestion at the entrance of the retail park.
