Pershore Infrastructure Improvement Scheme progress

June 2020

Further to the guidance from Transport Minister, Baroness Vere, regarding the resumption of Highway maintenance and improvement schemes, work has now resumed on site. All work is being carried out following the Highway Sector’s Site Operating Procedures which provide guidance on travel to work, welfare facilities, hygiene practices and other site management practices designed to control the spread of the virus.

The planned closure of Terrace Road took place between 23 to 31 May to allow for utility works to take place. The temporary traffic lights are now back in place on the junction to allow for the continuation of the A44 carriageway works.

The planned closure of Terrace Road took place over the half term holiday. This allowed Severn Trent Water and Openreach to come in and work on vital utility diversions.

The junction is now working on three-way temporary traffic lights, with vehicles now able to use the newly built link road from Pinvin to the A44.

Over the past couple of months, works have focused on the installation of the new slip road and allowing for the diversion of utilities including Severn Trent Water and Openreach.

The next phase of the works will involve carriageway widening of the A44. To allow these works to progress, temporary traffic lights will be in place on the junction from week commencing 27th January. Also, traffic travelling from Pinvin will be diverted onto the new slip and sent on the A44 towards the Evesham Road.

A closure will also take place on Terrace Road between Saturday 15th to Sunday 23rd February, to allow Openreach and Severn Trent Water to undertake further utility diversions.
