Welcome to the May/June edition of the Highways newsletter. We've changed the frequency of this newsletter to bring you more info in one edition.

 

There's lots going on across Milton Keynes during the summer months including road resurfacing, street light upgrades and on the porte cocheres around CMK.

 

All road works, diversions and closures are listed on http://www.roadworks.org   which is updated every 30 minutes.

 

Alternatively you can keep up to date with what's happening out and about on the road network by following our highway service provider Ringway on Twitter @ringway_mk
