Work on this non-MetroBus project commenced in May 2016 and was estimated to last 12 to 18 months.
In response to an enquiry from the Journal asking if it is now complete, an SGC spokesperson said:
“All of the major construction work relating to the original programme has been substantially completed within the £4.5m budget and on time.”
“A small number of outstanding items remain, including the erection of advanced direction signs, which are on order. This work will not impact traffic flows during peak times.”
“A project of this size requires the completion of a post-construction ‘road safety audit’ which has also been requested. It is hoped that the remaining items and any issues arising from the road safety audit will be completed in the new year.”
There has been a series of major faults with the new traffic signals on the Aztec West Roundabout since these were installed as part of the scheme.
A full description of the scheme, along with a detailed drawing, can be found on the council’s website at http://bit.ly/aztec-1508
