Traffic Management

 The drainage repairs will be carried using traffic signals which will remain in place 24hrs a day. The drainage works are planned to be carried out during the daytime but there may be a requirement for night works during which full carriageway closures will be necessary.  All excavation/noisy works will be carried out at the start of shift and completed where possible by 11pm.
