Motorists are being advised to allow for extra time on their journeys in the west of the borough.

Lane restrictions are to be implemented during the day as part of the works for a new housing development in West Moor.

A new signalised roundabout is being constructed on the A189 at the entrance to Bellway Homes planned housing development at Whitehouse Farm.

As part of the current works taking place at the site, the A189 has been reduced to a single lane in both directions at off-peak periods only.

However, to enable the construction of a new central reservation, single lanes will be in place at all times from Monday, October 19, to Sunday, November 8.

A 30mph speed restriction will also be in effect.

Road users are being advised that from Monday, November 9, single lanes will again be in operation at off-peak periods only.

The project is being delivered for Bellway Homes by Capita and due for completion in December 2015.
