There barely seems a moment when the A49 is not affected by roadworks. Keir, working for Highways England, will start the latest round on 25 April with the aim of completing the work by 17 June. Update: The commencement of these works has been delayed until 3 May. The aim is still to finish by 17 June. The work will include refurbishing existing traffic signals, which have reached the end of their serviceable life. The new lights will be LED lit to improve visibility, reducing the need for future maintenance and increasing energy efficiency. The road will also be resurfaced, including increasing the roads surface friction, and replacing the road markings and road studs. For a while there will be a temporary road surface in place. The completed work will provide a smoother surface and safer road, including clearer road markings. Repairs to the footpath and kerb will also take place following issues with localised flooding.
