Griff Roundabout

A444 Griff works completed ahead of schedule

Warwickshire County Council is pleased to announce the early completion of the £2m A444 Griff Roundabout Signalisation Scheme.

The works will now be complete before Christmas, three weeks earlier than originally scheduled.

The traffic signals themselves were switched-on on Friday 18 December and the final minor elements of the work completed by Wednesday 23 December. 

The county council together with their contractor, Carillion Highways Maintenance, have worked hard to complete the scheme ahead of schedule since work re-commenced on the roundabout in August 2009.

A great deal of the work has been carried out at night to keep disruption to a minimum and Carillion has also brought in additional resources to ensure the scheme would be ready by Christmas.

The completed scheme is expected to not only to improve safety at the roundabout but will provide additional facilities for both cyclists and pedestrians at this busy junction.

Cllr Alan Cockburn, Portfolio Holder for the Environment with Warwickshire County Council said: “I am delighted that this important project has now been completed. It will greatly improve safety for all road users making sustainable travel a far more viable option in this area.”
