Current works

A171/Swindale Lane junction


The turning from the A171 onto Swindale Lane will be widened and a right turn filter lane created. As part of the scheme the entrance to Swindale Lane will be relocated by approximately 100m to the west.


Works will start on the highway on the week commencing April 24, with some preparatory works and mobilisation of equipment before then. The works are scheduled to be completed by the end of July 2017.

Working hours

Normal working hours will be between 7am and 7pm from Monday to Friday.

Traffic management

Temporary traffic lights will be required for two week periods in May, June and July. The temporary lights will be operational during off-peak times from approximately 9.00am to 3.30pm and are not planned to be used at weekends.

A section of Swindale Lane will be closed for the duration of the highways works for safety reasons and there will be a 40mph speed restriction on the A171, as illustrated in the plan on the right.
