HIGHWAYS chiefs have revealed how the new and improved Pinvin Junction will look to motorists as they seek to tackle congestion at the notorious Vale traffic hotspot.
Works have recently focussed on the extension of the A44 north-west of the junction to accommodate an additional right-hand turn. Works have also taken place on the kerbing and installation of a new footpath on the south-east side of the A44 towards White Logistics.
Coun Ken Pollock, cabinet member for Economy and Infrastructure at Worcestershire County Council said work had progressed well, especially during the Coronavirus pandemic.
“If you’ve driven through the area recently, you will be able to get an idea of how much of a difference this scheme will make, once the works are complete,” he said.
“These works at Pinvin Junction are essential and another example of the council’s commitment to making improvements at known congestion hotspots.”
To allow surfacing works to take place, there are some planned night closures on the A44, Terrace Road and Main Street at the end of this month.
Closures will be in place from Monday (October 26) for up to four nights, from 8pm until 6am.
During the day, the junction will operate as it is now, under temporary traffic lights. Diversions will be in place during the closures.
Works on Pinvin Junction are set for completion this winter. The works to help ease congestion at Pinvin Junction are part of the wider Pershore Infrastructure Improvement Scheme.
