Improvements in your area – Rock Road, Ketley – Replacement of Speed Cushions to improve the traffic safety of your road
We will shortly be working in your area as part of the Council’s ‘Pride in Our Community’ investment programme. Between 2018 and 2022 we are investing over £50m in creating a better borough with improvements to roads, footpaths, streetlights, road signs, highways structures and green spaces.
In 2020/21 it is the Council’s aim to further improve our road network and highway assets. Some £12m will be invested during the next year, delivering 222 improvement schemes across the borough. These improvements will be achieved in partnership with the Council’s new highways contractor Balfour Beatty.
As part of the Council’s ongoing investment into its roads and footpaths, we will shortly be carrying out the replacement of the speed cushions to improve the condition of the traffic safety issues on Rock Road.
When are we planning to deliver this work?
The work is due to take place on 19/10/2020 and be completed by 30/10/2020, weather permitting.
We will be working in two phases, phase 1 (week one) removal of existing speed cushions and reinstatement of the carriageway 09:00-14:30hrs under a Road Closure, Phase 2 (week two) will be installation of rubber speed cushions and lining 0800-1700hrs under a Road Closure. Diversions will be set out in advance of the works and our dedicated teams will be on site to assist you during this time to help you get past the working areas safely should you need to do so. Whilst we will endeavour to minimise disruption we ask that you keep vehicle movements to an absolute minimum and not to park on the road. Please also ensure that children are supervised, do not play near the working areas and all pets are kept away from the works.
