Back Lane, Rugby – New Right Turn and Road Widening

Update 23rd May 2013

Back Lane was acompleted 2 weeks late due to problems with utilities however the general public were only told completion by April 2013 which we achieved. There were complaints during the works regarding the traffic management (particularly the extended periods of temporary traffic signals which were required because of the narrow lane). One resident did provide positive verbal feedback on the works saying the work had been carried out to a very high standard and that it was “looking nice”.


Brief description of scheme

The purpose of the Works is generally to provide improved access to Tee Tong Road at the junction with Back Lane by providing a new right turn lane. Back Lane will be widened locally to accommodate the new right turn lane. As a result of the widening there will be a number of utility diversions required during the works to accommodate the widening works.

When will work commence?

Work is due to commence on the 19th November 2012 and is scheduled to last approximately 16 weeks.

What can I expect to see on site?

The area illustrated on the plan provided will look like a typical construction site with workmen, excavators, dumpers, rollers and portacabins. Back Lane will look like a typical roadworks scheme with traffic cones and signs / temporary signals directing the traffic.

Warwickshire County Council are committed to reducing the noise and disruption caused by their construction projects and shall maintain open lines of communication with all affected members of the public during the works.

When will the work be taking place?

When the scheme starts the contractor will be working on site Monday to Friday 7.30am to 4.30pm. Occasional weekend working may also be required.

Will the road be closed?

Back Lane we be kept open for all traffic movements with access to residents also kept at all times. There will however be temporary traffic management in the form of two way lights in operation for much of the works.
