Temporary Road Closure – B6288 Merrington Lane, Spennymoor
An Order is being made under the provisions of Section 14(1) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 the effect of which will be to close to vehicular traffic from 7.30 am on Monday 28 September 2020 a 530 metre length of B6288 Merrington Lane, Spennymoor from junction with Front Street in a southerly direction to Vyners Close roundabout.
The closure is necessary to enable Section 278 works including road widening and the installation of tucan and pedestrian crossings to be undertaken, and will be in place for 60 days duration.
Throughout the period of closure, a diversion route for vehicular traffic will be signposted from the north eastern side of the closure from A688/St Andrews Lane roundabout junction in a westerly direction on A688 to C152 roundabout junction, then south easterly on C152 to the south western side of the closure, and vice versa.
To provide a brief update on the temporary road closure at B6288 Merrington Lane, Spennymoor that is in place to allow for Seymour Engineering to complete Section 278 works – widening of junction, and installation of tucan and pedestrian crossing. Works were due to be completed and the road re-opened by 18 December 2020. However, due to problems encountered with a gas main on site, I have been informed by the developer that the closure is likely to remain in place for some weeks to come, at least 2-3, until the problem can be rectified.
If it transpires that the closure will remain in place beyond January, I will continue to update you all once I have further information.
