If you live near the new roundabout joining Fendon Road, Queen Edith’s Way and Mowbray Road, you’ll be aware of the ‘hit and run’ damage in March — we’re told it was a white van travelling very fast around midnight.
We reported the damage to the County Council in March, and they inspected. They’ve now told us they have arranged remedial works for the end of June — held off until then so that the Robin Hood junction works are complete.
The works will take place over three nights, starting on Tuesday, 29th June. There will be a full closure of the roundabout each night between 8.00pm and 6.00am. Advance warning signs will be in place at least a week before, and Road Closed/diversion signs erected before the closures. Citi 1 and Citi 2 buses will be diverted during the evening via Nightingale Avenue and there will be a notice at the Fendon Road bus stop, which will be out of use. The bollard at the closure point will be lowered to allow buses through and then re-erected after the last bus of the evening. There will be someone on duty to ensure that only buses go through the modal filter and not general traffic.
The Fendon Road/QEW remedial works will include resurfacing of areas where significant fretting has occurred, eg. on the westbound exit to Queen Edith’s Way, on the northbound approach on Fendon Road and on a few parts of the circulatory. The material used will be upgraded to make a tighter mix, which should be more resilient.
The chevron blockwork on the roundabout will be repaired and any road markings affected by the remedial works replaced/refreshed.
If you live near the roundabout, you should receive a letter from the Council in a few weeks’ time, and local businesses and organizations will be informed too. Please share the information with your contacts.
