More Roadworks on A53 – Nov. 2017

Roadworks SignWith two weeks of roadworks due to start on Tuesday (7/11/17) at Espley Roundabout, Roadworks.org have twice sent out email alerts about two further sets of works on the A53. One word of warning, this author has tried to follow the links to the items on the their website and in each case the result “The item does not exist” is displayed. It seems wise however to pass the information on so local residents are forewarned.

The first of these alerts reads:
