The work will take place at a number of roundabouts and other locations and is weather dependent so the programme dates may be subject to change.

Funding for the work has come from the council’s highways capital fund as part of its Pride In Your Community programme to make the borough a better place to live, work and visit.

Road closures will be used at most sites as this allows for works to be completed quickly, safely and efficiently to minimise disruption.

Access for residents and businesses will be maintained throughout the works and, where closures are in force, diversions are in place.
