Work item details

We are constructing two bridges under the A38 to take HS2 beneath the main carriageway and slip roads. Traffic management is required to carry out the works, which will involve narrow lanes and speed restrictions for the duration of the work, along with lane closures and full carriageway closures when required. We will be undertaking preparatory works on the A38, in advance of the construction of the HS2 line.

These works will include
• Hardening of the central reservation
• Installation of a new temporary vehicle restraint system to protect staff in our working area
• Narrow lanes
• Reduction of the speed limit to 40mph
• Speed detection cameras will be installed

These works will take place over eight weekends between Friday 15 October 2021 and Monday 6 December 2021.
Our working hours, during each weekend, will commence at 8pm each Friday and end at 5am each Monday morning.
