From late July 2021, Winvic will be working on the construction of a new signal controlled access roundabout on the A38, located approximately 500m north of the existing Minworth island. Once completed the roundabout will serve as the access point to employment park for all vehicles.
Temporary overnight closures
The first phase of work will require some temporary full overnight closures on the A38 between the Minworth Island and Bassetts Pole roundabout on Monday 26 July and Tuesday 27 July between the hours of 7.30pm and 7.00am to set up the scheme’s traffic management.
Please note we also have permission to close the road on 28 and 29 July, but do not expect to need to use this contingency.
During these closures a diversion will be put in place along Kingsbury Road and the A446 Lichfield Road.
A38 lane closures
Once the traffic management has been put in place, the A38 will be reduced to a single lane (using just the outside lanes) for a 1,200-1,600-metre section of the road to the north of the Minworth island where the new roundabout is being constructed.
This arrangement will be in place for up to 18 weeks, after which we will switch to using the inside lanes for a further 10 week period. The new roundabout is expected to be open to traffic in spring 2022.
We understand that any work in the highway can be frustrating and would like to thank you for your patience during these essential works. We’ll be doing everything we can to keep disruption to a minimum and would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience that does arise from this work.
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.
