At the moment we are working on the 2 stage of our project – Eastlands the Purple part of the map provided to the community. We are hoping that this stretch of road works will be complete by the bank holiday weekend, which means we are about 3 weeks ahead of our schedule.

We will then be moving onto stage 3 of our project (Red part of map) which will be a full road closure.
