The scheme to improve traffic flow at Pinvin Junction in Pershore is progressing well. So far, works have focused on the installation of the new slip road and allowing for the rerouting of utilities including Severn Trent Water and Openreach. The next phase of the works will involve carriageway widening of the A44.
Works at the junction are part of Worcestershire County Council’s wider Pershore Infrastructure Improvements Scheme, which aims to tackle congestion in and around the Pershore area.
Councillor Ken Pollock, Worcestershire County Council's Cabinet Member with Responsibility for Economy and Infrastructure, said: “It’s great to see work moving forward on another of our schemes to tackle known congestion hotspots.”
“These works at Pinvin Junction are essential in order to improve traffic flow for local residents and commuters using the route”
To allow the next phase of works to take place, temporary traffic lights will be in place from week commencing 27th January to allow for works on the A44. Also, traffic travelling from Pinvin towards the junction will be diverted onto the new slip road, in order to access the A44.
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.
The works to help ease congestion at Pinvin Junction are part of the wider Pershore Infrastructure Improvement Scheme, which has already seen works at the Station Road/Wyre Road junction and will include the construction of the Pershore Northern Link Road.
