London Road improvement works: Update

Published on 9th April 2019 in General

With the London Road works well under way, soon the developers will be progressing with resurfacing works in front of the railway station, at the Waterloo Way junction and the Evington Road/Granville Road junction during April.

Diversions and lane closures will be put in place for the night time resurfacing works. Surfacing of Waterloo Way and Evington Road/Granville Road junctions will take place in a series of short phases between 7pm and 6am, to minimise disruption.
