A36 Upton Lovell Junction Improvements

A scheme to improve safety on the A36 at Upton Lovell starts on Monday, 20 October and continues until February


Work at the Manor Road junction will mostly be carried out during the day but some overnight closures of the A36 will also be required. Temporary traffic lights will be in operation 24 hours a day throughout the works.

Project sponsor, Mike Webster, said, “The scheme will improve safety by providing traffic signals at the junction, a right hand turn lane into Manor Road and pedestrian crossing.

“We have planned the work carefully to minimise disruption but we would like to thank road users and local residents for their patience while we carry out this important work.”

To ensure the safety of the public and our road workers, it will be necessary to close the A36 between Deptford roundabout and the A36/A350 roundabout at certain times during the works. Fully signed diversion routes will be in place throughout all closures.

When the A36 is closed northbound traffic will be diverted along the A303 westbound, then north onto the A350 before rejoining the A36.

Southbound traffic will follow this route in the opposite direction.

Access will be maintained for residents and local businesses at all times but access onto the A36 from Manor Road will remain prohibited until the works are completed.
