HS2 - Notice of traffic management on A4097 Kingsbury Road

Published on Wednesday, 18th December 2019

Temporary traffic lights on A4097 Kingsbury Road. Possible disruption to journey times. Works will start from 13th January 2020 for three weeks.

Works planned near Marston and Curdworth

Over the coming months we’ll be working near Marston and Curdworth to prepare the route of the new railway ahead of main works construction next year. This work includes vegetation clearance and some tree clearance alongside constructing fencing.

There will be temporary traffic management

To ensure safe access to our clearance sites we will be operating temporary traffic lights along the A4097 Kingsbury Road. These signals will be in operation between 9:30am and 3:30pm from 13th January for three weeks, subject to consent. Our teams will be on site up to one hour before and one hour after the works to set up and secure the site at the end of each day.

Access to properties and businesses will be maintained throughout the works.

Why we're doing this work

In order to deliver Phase One of HS2, connecting London Euston to the West Midlands, we need to prepare as much of the route as possible between October 2019 and March 2020. This will ensure that our main construction work can commence on time. It is also important to complete this work during this time of year as it is outside of key periods in the ecological calendar and minimises our impact on local wildlife.
