Hall Lane / County Road / Old Rough Lane Road Works

Hall Lane / County Road / Old Rough Lane Road Works

Here are the details for the forthcoming highway improvement scheme at County Road/Old Rough Lane/Hall Lane junction.

Knowsley MBC has been successful in a bid for nearly £700K to upgrade this junction to improve access into the town centre. The project also supports the development of Kirkby Town Centre which includes the construction of a new Morrisons supermarket and other retail outlets as well as supporting local housing growth.

The scheme which is currently at end of the detailed design phase and is now approaching the Construction phase is planned from 22 October 2018-March 2019.  The first week of the closure will be Half Term which should assist in highlighting potential problems ahead of schools reopening the following week. The aim of the project is to improve safety and access facilities for pedestrians and cyclists and introduce improved capacity for vehicular traffic. As such the signals and layout of the junction will change although not drastically. During the Construction phase we aim to maximise safety for all users and minimise the amount of invasive time spent on site to re-open the junction as soon as possible. The phasing of the Construction Works will be as follows (although it must be understood that any significant period of poor weather will negatively affect these timescales)

As you can see from details, this will be a challenging period of construction dealing with existing road users and maintaining access and safety wherever possible – especially pedestrians. By introducing the above controls we have managed to reduce the Construction period and thereby Congestion time for all users.

It should also be noted that similar works are planned at M57 Junction 6 at Valley Road where Knowsley MBC has been similarly successful in attracting £1.138M to install new traffic signals and improve capacity for similar reasons as stated above.
