OVERNIGHT CLOSURE OF B&Q ROUNDABOUT AS ST MARY’S SCHEME PROGRESSES

Published:

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.

Amazing how the council has plenty of money to waste on this scheme, yet it can’t afford to keep public toilets open.

Was driving down Forest Road today, got stopped by temporary traffic lights which then immediately went back to green – now considering traffic can’t come the other way at that point on Forest Road it slowly hit me that there was absolutely no need for that single, solitary, traffic light at all. Of course with so much other roadworks popping up all over the island it could be that when they hired all the lights they needed they got them on a hire one get one free, and as they had one leftover they thought what the heck nobody will notice if we put it there!

Passed works mid morning raining & no visible workers doing any work, can see this over shooting the allotted time scale if weather does not improve!
Typical.
