Junction for Batchley Road

The works to install a new mini-roundabout and zebra crossing at the Batchley Road/Hewell Road junction in Redditch, will now commence week beginning Monday 8 April.

The works were due to get underway this week (week commencing 25 March) but have had to be put back to ensure that utility works can take place at the same time, causing less disruption in the area.

The new mini roundabout will be installed adjacent to the junction of Batchley Road, and the zebra crossing will be added along Batchley Road.

During the works, at times, there will be closures of Batchley Road between Hewell Road and Ashtree Road. Hewell Road will have lane closures and operate under temporary traffic lights.

The existing bus stop at the junction will be removed and relocated once the works are complete. The No. 51 Diamond bus service will be diverted via Oak Tree Avenue and Salters Lane and Hewell Road. Access to frontages will be maintained at all times and any diversions will be clearly signed.
