Safety improvements on A36

posted 23 May 2015, 00:42 by Parish Council Communications
Residents will be aware that Skanska, on behalf of Highways England, are currently carrying out a major geotechnical scheme on the A36 at Claverton.  They also need to carry out essential safety improvements along the A36 at 10 separate locations.  These will include a variety of improvements including improved signing, new road markings, high friction surface treatment, patching, red surfacing and vegetation clearance.  They have decided to carry out these safety improvements at the same time as the geotechnical scheme in a bid to minimise disruption in the future.

The safety works will start on Monday, June 1st, and will last approximately four weeks, with both day time and night time working taking place.  The majority of the work will be carried out using temporary traffic signals but at times it will be necessary to close certain parts of the road to ensure safety. During this time, local diversions will be put in place and signage will be on display.  Below you will see a programme of where they will be at times throughout the works.
