Work set to start on commuter route

Malvern Editorial 23rd Apr, 2015 Updated: 20th Oct, 2016   0

ONE OF the busiest stretches of road used by Malvern commuters is set to close for six nights.

As part of the £8million scheme to improve the Southern Link Road, the Broomhall Way section of the A4440, between Ketch and Norton Junctions, will be shutting from Sunday (April 26) to Friday (May 1), between 8pm and 6am.

The works will form phase two of the scheme and will see the final surfacing and lining of the road on the Ketch Roundabout and on all four of its arms carried out.

Diversion routes will be in place for all the affected roads which includes the A4440 between Ketch and Norton, the A38 from Ketch to Timberdine, the A38 from Ketch towards Kempsey and the A4440 between Ketch and Powick.

Jon Fraser, Worcestershire County Council’s community and engagement manager, said: “This work is happening overnight to minimise any inconvenience as much as possible and in advance we would like to thank motorists for their patience while it is taking place.

“This is part of a phased approach to dealing with one of the most congested routes in the county, which will benefit motorists by improving transport links and infrastructure, helping to boost the local economy.

“Schemes like this are part of our Open for Business strategy and contributing to our long term aim of building a World Class Worcestershire.”
