ACCESS through one of the busiest roundabouts in Redditch will be restricted overnight for a week for resurfacing works.
The work on the Riverside roundabout, near to Sainsbury's and the crematorium, will take place from 7.30pm to 7am for six nights from Tuesday (October 22).
The road will not be closed but access through the roundabout will be restricted with traffic lights in place and local diversions.
Following the resurfacing, road marking will be replaced with all work expected to be completed by the following Monday (October 28).
Work will also take place at the B&Q (A441) roundabout from Sunday, October 27, from 6pm with resurfacing the following day (Monday) during the day. The roundabout and accesses will be closed with a short diversion route in place, with bridge work for the next four days seeing the slip roads reopening but the bridge deck being closed.
Preparation work will start near the McDonald's (A441) roundabout from 7.30pm on Monday, October 28, with a diversion in place the following day (Tuesday) while the anti-skid surface on the north exit of the island is replaced.
Jon Fraser, Worcestershire County Council's highways manager, said: "The roads around these traffic islands have deteriorated due to the poor weather earlier this year and we have scheduled the works to take place during the school half term and before the run-up to Christmas to help minimise disruption to residents and businesses.
"This is evidence of our continuing commitment to improve the roads in Redditch by investing in the highways infrastructure.
"We would like to thank people for their patience in advance and apologise for the disruption whilst the work takes place."
