UPDATE: Westmorland Way roundabout
September 25, 2019
Work on the Westmorland Way/Forum Way Roundabout is progressing well and just about on programme.
The Technical Services department at Northumberland County Council have stated: The final resurfacing is programmed to be carried out week commencing Monday 18th of November on night shift between the hours of 22:00 and 6am for approx 7 nights. The entrance beside McDonalds into Manor Walks won’t be closed until after 23:00 as we are aware access will be needed up until this time.
We are aware of the need for the overflow car park leading up to Christmas where we have our site compound set up and aim to start to reduce the area we are occupying at the end of October and will move our fences in to reduce the space we have taken up and we will vacate the area as soon as practicable.
The works which was started at Sainsbury’s roundabout to widen the corner of the road will now start again on Monday 14th of October under a twilight shift between the hours of 18:00 and midnight Monday to Friday for 2 weeks under 4 way temporary traffic lights manually controlled. We hope this will reduce the traffic congestion caused the last time.
