We’ve been working with the Environment Agency on plans to help reduce the risk of flooding in this area. These plans include installing a large water storage area upstream of Broad Lane and another smaller one at the junction. These areas will help to hold water during heavy rainfall events and reduce the impacts of flooding on Broad Lane. Persimmon will be creating a new cycle path and there will also be new gullies and drainage in the Hockley Lane area.
To complete the remaining works safely we need to temporarily close the section of Broad Lane between Banner Lane and Hockley Lane to vehicles for a period of 3 weeks. This will commence on Friday 11 August.
We will maintain a protected pedestrian route while the closure is in place. Vehicle access will be for residents only. Access for refuse collections will be arranged.

We stopped work on the site while we worked with Severn Trent to identify how best to divert the water main that runs under the site.We are still working with Severn Trent, but as a solution could be a number of weeks away we have decided to get on and complete the junction work. However, if it still proves necessary to move the water mains, we will not lay the top course of tarmac until these works have been completed.
The site cabins will be brought back and set up on Saturday 22 July with the work restarting on site on Monday 24 July. The roundabout works are expected to take approximately six weeks with some additional work being completed afterwards. This means that the majority of the work can be done during the school summer holidays when the roads are usually quieter.
