The B&Q roundabout in Newport will be closed overnight for the next 2 weeks as the next stage of the multi-million pound St Mary’s Junction scheme gets underway.
Work to alter the roundabout to incorporate an additional lane onto what is currently St Mary’s Roundabout will begin at 20:00 tonight (Monday 14th October).
Access onto Dodnor Lane, to B&Q and the Isle of Wight College from St Mary’s Roundabout will not be permitted between the hours of 20:00 and 04:00. Those wishing to access the industrial estate, superstore or college will have to divert via Manners View and approach the roundabout from the north.
The road will remain open as normal at all other times.
Following the completion of works at B&Q roundabout, the next phase of the scheme will run from 4th November until 20th December. This phase will be more intrusive for motorists with lane closures on St Mary’s Roundabout and its approaches. However, Forest Road will re-open in both directions by 4th November.
