Castlefields Way road closure

Work is starting today on reconstructing Castlefields Way in Aqueduct between the roundabout and Southall Road.

The work is expected to last 3 weeks and the diversion is via the Eastern Primary and round Brookside Avenue so expect an increase in traffic for a while.

The council found problems with the material under the road after I harassed them into sorting out the dip in the road at the traffic lights by Willow Bank a couple of years ago. There is a concrete slab under that section of the road which is obviously very heavy and prone to sinking over time. The rest of the road is prone to cracking caused by slippage of the substructure.
