Overnight lane closures on Soke Parkway
|There are likely to be overnight lane closures on the Soke Parkway (A47) this week as work starts to clear trees and vegetation around the Rhubarb Bridge (A15) flyover.
Clearance works around Junction 18 of the A47/A15 will start on Monday 19 and last until Sunday.
The work is being carried out by Amey on behalf of Peterborough City Council and will take place between 8pm and 5am each day, with lane closures put in place.
Work is taking place as part of preparations for major repairs to Rhubarb Bridge and improvements to the junction which will start in January.
This will see structural works to the bridges which will help maintain them for the next 10 years, as well as the construction of new pedestrian crossings.
The project will increase capacity and improve traffic flow at the junction.
Councillor Peter Hiller, Peterborough City Council’s cabinet member for growth and economic development, said: “As motorists will be aware, this is one of the city’s busiest road junctions and it has been in need of improvement for some time.
“We are not expecting this preparation work to cause any lengthy disruption, however we want to make drivers aware of what is happening so they can plan their journeys accordingly.”
