“The civil engineering work is complete. We have the new speed table to install which will take place during an overnight road closure.”

“This has been held back until the resurfacing of Woodlands Lane has finished. The Bowsland Way speed table will now be installed the week commencing 28th September or soon thereafter, an exact date will be confirmed nearer the time.”

“The temporary traffic lights on Bowsland Way will remain in place to provide suitable gaps in the traffic for pedestrians to cross until the new crossing is fully commissioned.”
