Next phase of Pinvin Junction revamp to begin

Evesham Editorial 25th Jan, 2020   0

DRIVERS using the A44 at Pinvin Junction have been advised temporary traffic lights will be in operation from next week as the next phase of the revamp of the busy junction gets under way.

So far, works have focused on the installation of the new slip road and allowing for the rerouting of utilities including Severn Trent Water and Openreach.

The next phase of the works will involve carriageway widening of the A44.

Works at the junction are part of Worcestershire County Council’s wider Pershore Infrastructure Improvements Scheme, which aims to tackle congestion in and around the Pershore area.




To allow the next phase of works to take place, temporary traffic lights will be in place from Monday (January 27).

Also, traffic travelling from Pinvin towards the junction will be diverted onto the new slip road, in order to access the A44.


A closure will also take place on Terrace Road between February 15 and 23 to allow Openreach and Severn Trent Water to undertake further utility diversions.

As part of the plan to help ease congestion at Pinvin Junction, work has taken place at the Station Road and Wyre Road junction. It will include the construction of the Pershore Northern Link Road.

Coun Ken Pollock, council cabinet member for economy and infrastructure, said: “It’s great to see work moving forward on another of our schemes to tackle known congestion hotspots.”

“These works at Pinvin Junction are essential in order to improve traffic flow for local residents and commuters using the route”
