Temporary overnight closures on A38 (week commencing 3 July 2023)
From Wednesday 5 July until Friday 7 July 2023, Winvic will be carrying out a programme of overnight works on the new roundabout on the A38, which is the main access point into the employment park for all vehicles.
This will involve final surfacing of the carriageways and completing the finishing touches on the roundabout. Work is being carried out over two nights to minimise disruption during this last phase of construction, and we don’t anticipate any further closures or traffic management measures will be needed after this is completed.
The work will require temporary overnight closures on the A38 in both directions between Minworth Island and the roundabout at Junction 3 of the M6 Toll. These temporary closures will be for two nights from Wednesday 5 July to Friday 7 July, between the hours of 7.00pm and 6.00am.
During these closures, a diversion will be put in place along Kingsbury Road and the A446 Lichfield Road up to Bassetts Pole roundabout (see map below). The road will not be closed outside of these hours.
The diversion routes will be clearly signposted and have been agreed and approved by the highways authorities at Birmingham City Council, Warwickshire County Council and National Highways.
We understand that any work on local roads can be frustrating and would like to thank you for your patience during these essential works.
If you have any questions about construction-related activity or anything you have seen on site, you can contact the site team directly by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 01604 678960.
A38 diversion route:
Permanent closure of Wishaw Lane
To successfully deliver the first phase of the Peddimore scheme, we have needed to permanently close or ‘stop up’ both Wishaw Lane and Peddimore Lane.
Our planning application which was granted in September 2019 demonstrated that the closure of the roads is necessary to deliver the infrastructure, strategic landscaping and development across the site. The Department for Transport (DfT) subsequently granted permission for the stopping up of the roads in 2020.
Peddimore Lane has already been closed to vehicles (with the exception of residents needing to access their properties), although remains open to pedestrians as a public right of way. A crossing point has been installed where construction traffic needs to safely cross this route.
Wishaw Lane was permanently closed in September 2021 from a point just to the north of the sports pavilion at the playing fields to where the large electricity pylon is located as the road bends to the north of the site.
This has not impacted on access to the frontages of any property along the road or land to the north, and all of the work has been carried out in line with the relevant permissions secured from Birmingham City Council and the DfT.
As a reminder, construction traffic will not be routed through the Minworth estate and deliveries will be minimised during morning and evening peak hours. Please get in touch with us if you have any questions.
