Highways improvement at Valley Road, Kirkby

by Comms Team

Work is set to begin on a new signalised junction on Valley Road, Kirkby to improve safety and sustainability.

The work will start on Monday 6 February at the junction between Valley Road and Bewley Drive.

It will allow pedestrians and cyclists to cross the carriageway and will improve road safety by allowing vehicles to turn into and out of Bewley Drive without having to cross moving traffic on Valley Road.

The work will be completed in April 2017.

You can see a plan of the new junction here.

Funding from the Local Growth Fund is sought over a six period from 2015/16 to 2020/21.
