A52 resurfacing programme continues
Published: 30 June 2020
The A52 resurfacing programme between Pentagon to Raynesway is now well underway with inbound and outbound sections from Wyvern to Raynesway completed.
The project aims to complete resurfacing along the length of the city maintained section of the A52, that has not been completed as part of the Wyvern Transport Improvement Scheme. So far, almost 8000sqm of road has been resurfaced along with all the drainage gullies cleaned and repaired and maintenance undertaken on all the verges.
It’s the largest resurfacing scheme we’ve undertaken as part of the additional £9m highway funding that was awarded in March.
Work on Phase 3 and 4 between Wyvern and the Pentagon inbound and outbound has now begun and there will be road closures in place overnight on the following days
- Three weeks of weeknight closures will be in place in both directions from Monday 29th June to Friday 17th July between 8.00pm and 6.00am
- Phase 3 – a total of 10,564sqm to be repaired. This section requires additional treatment, including a lower binder course and a geogrid to the give the road structure additional rigidity for its expected traffic use. All road markings will be replaced
- Phase 4 – a total of 9,760sqm to be planed and resurfaced and new road markings applied, with some repairs to gullies and ironwork.
- All work will be completed overnight and made safe in the morning, prior to reopening for traffic
- During the construction of Phase 3, the road surface will be temporary. A 40mph speed limit will be in place and travelling public are asked to drive with caution
- All gullies will be cleansed on each phase and ensure they are running smoothly
