Hermitage Lane improvement scheme

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

It will create a longer, dedicated lane for vehicles turning right into the retail park, and help the traffic flow of those heading south through the junction.

The works will take place between September and December 2017. There are two overnight works planned at the end of August to remove existing traffic islands. Construction will be carefully managed during this period to keep additional delays to a minimum. Temporary traffic signals will be put in place and mirror the current signal operation.

Information boards will be placed on site one month before to the works begin, and will be kept in place until work is complete.

The scheme includes:

  • a dedicated left hand lane for northbound traffic turning right into the retail park
  • installing temporary traffic lights during the works
  • removing existing traffic islands to allow traffic to move whilst construction is underway.
