Rugby Western Relief Road (RWRR)

The Rugby Western Relief Road (RWRR) was built to relieve traffic congestion in and around Rugby.

On-going residential and industrial development in the town over the next few years, particularly to the west and north of the town centre, will mean further traffic coming into and out of the town and the relief road is needed to respond to the ever growing demands on the road network.

The road will also help to mitigate environmental damage from effects such as noise and air pollution as well as creating better conditions for pedestrians and cyclists and will help reduce the number of accidents.

The £36.6 million scheme included a £17.08 million contribution from the Department for Transport as well as contributions from developers. The contract was awarded to Carillion JM Ltd who started work on site in August 2007 and completed work at the end of 2009.

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.

Update 23rd May 2013

Rugby Gateway was completed 2 weeks late but we were able to remove the traffic management before the Christmas holidays and all the work was completed before the show homes were opened to the public. We have had little comments from the public on this project other than during construction. with very few complaints being received. The junction appears to be working well and the works was complete without detrimental effect on the operations of the ambulance station next door which was a big concern.

 

Update 15th November 2012

Brief description of scheme

The purpose of the Works is generally to provide a new access to a housing development from the existing A426 Leicester Road / Brownsover Lane and re-align the Northern section of Brownsover Lane so that it connects to the new road joining the roundabout.

When will work commence?

Work is due to commence on the 8th October 2012 and is scheduled to last approximately 10 weeks.

How much noise will there be?

Whilst work is being carried out the maximum level of noise you should hear would be the same level that you would experience within a noisy bar, and this  should only be for short periods of time.

This will not be a constant noise but will    be on various occasions when mechanical activity will be taking place. Officially the level will be up to about 100 decibels (dB).

Examples of what dB levels are:

  • 70dB is the level of noise from a  busy office, electric shaver or  alarm clock;
  • 90dB is the level of noise from inside a moving bus;
  • 100dB is the level of noise from a busy bar.

Your health and safety is very important to us and we will have control measures in place during the work.
