Queensferry roundabout will be shut for an entire weekend in May as road resurfacing work takes place.
The closure will allow contractors to complete the final resurfacing works both safely and in as short a time possible and the roundabout will be closed overnight on Thursday 5 May and again from the evening of Friday 6 May until Monday morning on 9 May.
There will be signed diversion routes in place whilst the work is being carried out and details of the routes are available on the Flintshire County Council website from 28 April.
The Council will be holding an information event on 28 April in order that residents and businesses in the area can find out more information about the closure and the alternative routes. Members of the project team will be available at the session to discuss the proposals and answer any individual questions on the proposals.
This event will be at the Queensferry War Memorial Institute on 28 April 2016 from 1pm to 6pm. Local residents and businesses are all invited to attend.
Work on the £600,000 Queensferry roundabout improvement scheme roadworks began in early February 8, and is scheduled to be complete in early May.
The improvement work will includes:
- Widening of the Queensferry roundabout to create extra running lanes.
- Remodelling of the junction of the B5129 and the B5441 at ASDA.
- Signalisation of all the approaches to the Queensferry roundabout.
- Upgrading and linking all existing and new traffic signals.Temporary traffic lights and lane restrictions will be in operation and while all measures will be taken to avoid disruption, delays will be expected.
The project will improve access to sites within the Deeside Enterprise Zone, including the Northern Gateway and Airfields development site, as well as improve journey times and safety for road users.
