Midway point for Wragby roadworks

The works include widening the Wragby Road carriageway

Six months of roadworks to reduce congestion along Outer Circle Road and Wragby Road have reached their midway point.

As previously reported, contractors began the works in February to improve traffic flow along Outer Circle Road and Wragby Road.

The project is being funded using part of the £5.4million allocated to the authority by the Department of Transport from its National Productivity Investment Fund

The work includes creating longer lanes along Outer Circle Road on the approach to Wragby Road.

It also involves widening the Wragby Road carriageway between Wolsey Way and Outer Circle Road to accommodate four lanes (two westbound and two eastbound).

The work done over the past two months includes:

  • Complex utility diversions
  • Excavation and road/footway reinstatement
  • Traffic signal ducting installation
  • Removal of Wragby Road/Wolsey Way traffic islands
  • Disconnection/temporary relocation of traffic signals
  • Kerbing and surfacing at various locations throughout the site

Executive member for highways, Councillor Richard Davies said: “Works to improve the Wragby Road junctions with Outer Circle Road and Wolsey Way are going to plan and are still on track to be complete this summer.

“Since starting on-site, the project team has been working to ensure the scheme stays on schedule and that any disruption is kept to a minimum.”
