MOTORISTS in Stratford-upon-Avon face over six months of traffic disruption starting today (Tuesday) while works take place to support the planned redevelopment of the former site of the cattle market.
Warwickshire County Council is encouraging people who would normally use the roads around the site to plan their travel to minimise any disruption to
The council will be carrying out a programme of substantial road works around the site over the next 30 weeks.
The first phase of work will start on Tuesday and last for approximately eight weeks. During this time, an alternative access to Stratford railway station’s car park will be constructed to maintain access to the station in advance of the main works.
Traffic lights will be installed at the junction of Western Road and Birmingham Road. Re-surfacing works will also be taking place on Western Road.
Once these initial works are complete, further works to provide new access to the development site off the Alcester Road will begin in October.
There will be a new signal-controlled junction on the Alcester Road near to the existing junction with Station Road.
Station Road will become a paved pedestrian thoroughfare and vehicular access to the new railway station will be provided from the new junction on Alcester Road through the new development.
A new stairway will also be constructed adjacent to the existing temporary stairs linking Alcester Road to the train station.
All the works are expected to be completed in early 2014.
A dedicated web page, www.warwickshire.gov.uk/stratfordcattlemarket, has been set up to provide updates throughout the programme of works.
