A509 and A422 Improvements
We were awarded £3.9m after a successful bid to improve our highways from the Department of Transport Challenge Fund which helps local councils to finance large projects.
19 projects across the country received a share of a £75 million funding pot for essential road maintenance. The upgrade of the A509/A422 will help to support the East-West corridor transport links to major roads like the M1, A428 and A421.
The upgrade work will cost a total of £4.9m and included:
- Extensive road resurfacing
- Road surface treatments
- White line painting
- Safety improvements such as barriers at the side of the road
- New signage and renew key route signage along the length to improve wayfinding
- Improved drainage systems to help cope with higher volumes of surface water and reduce flooding
