Temporary closure of Blunts Lane

Blunts Lane will be closed for 14 days from Tuesday 23 July, while work gets under way to reroute utility supplies in preparation for the Forder Valley Link Road.

People will still be able to access Poole Farm from Forder Valley Road but all other drivers and pedestrians will need to follow a signed diversion route via Novorossiysk Road and Miller Way.

Access to properties and allotments on Blunts Lane will be maintained (via this diversion) and residents living closest to the works are being contacted directly.

The utility work will involve some excavation and heavy machinery but all efforts are being made to minimise disruption.

Construction of the Forder Valley Link Road is expected to get under way in the autumn, when Blunts Lane will need to be closed again, this time for the duration of the works.
