A NEW bridge will appear over the A46 near Stoneleigh next month.
It is a milestone in the £38million A46 Stoneleigh Junction scheme which is aiming to reduce regular delays and queueing traffic, improve road safety fand ensure the junction has the capacity needed to meet future in the region.
The putting in place of the bridge deck in position will require lane closures on the by-pass.
The northbound carriageway will be reduced to one lane between December 13 and 15 to enable the delivery of the specialist equipment to enable the A46 bridge deck move. The first week in January will be used as a contingency if there is bad weather during the scheduled dates.
And both carriageways will be reduced to one lane between December 16 and 18 to enable the bridge deck to be moved into place. The first weekend in January will be used if there are any weather delays.
Diversion routes will be in place throughout.
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 highways spokesman Coun Wallace Redford said: “These lane closures are essential in order to allow for delivery and installation of the bridge deck.
“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.”
