Roadworks along Evesham Road, Stratford, look to finally have been completed
THE congestion and frustration looks to finally be over for residents and motorists around Evesham Road, Stratford, after the much-delayed roadworks were removed.
For more than 20 months the area has been a building site as contractors worked on a project to create a new roundabout to link Evesham Road to a new housing estate.
The work, which started in February 2022, was hampered with setbacks, mainly due to complications surrounding the engineering of a new culvert for Shottery Brook.
The delays caused dismay and anger, with residents around Evesham Road and Bordon Hill having difficulty getting out of their driveways and having to live with noise and vibrations.
However, the cones were (almost) gone on Saturday (18th November) and traffic looked to be flowing freely around what looks to be a completed roundabout.
The Herald will confirm the situation with Warwickshire County Council on Monday.
During the work, the situation for residents reached such a low point that they dubbed the area ‘Bordon Hell’ and a crunch meeting was arranged with WCC.
