traffic jam

People who use Bromham Road, Shakespeare Road and Ashburnham Road should give themselves more journey time from tomorrow (17 February), as six weeks of roadworks are due to start.

Temporary traffic lights will be in place for six weeks as improvements to the double mini roundabouts are put in place.

The include new zebra crossings with parallel cycle crossings on each arm of the junction, providing safe spaces for pedestrians and cyclists to cross the road.

New shared use footways will also be constructed linking all of the crossings together.

Ashburnham Road will also be resurfaced between Bromham Road and Midland Road.

Mayor Dave Hodgson said “This junction improvement is just the latest in a number of works across our town, to cut congestion and improve road safety.

“We are doing these works while Network Rail’s closure of Bromham Road Bridge is ongoing, to minimise disruption to local residents.”
