The current phase of works is planned to be complete at the end of November. Between now and then the work that is currently just south of Dunford Bridge using two way temporary traffic signals will move to “negotiate” the McLaren roundabout under three way temporary signals with the northern end of Martyrs Lane closed before returning to two way signals as the works approach Anthonys itself. Three overnight closures of the A320 are arranged during the half term week between McLaren and Anthony’s.

In the original plans works would start again in the new year refurbishing existing pipes heading back north from Anthonys to Ottershaw however this part of the project has now been re evaluated.

It is now planned for work to start at the beginning of February at the Guildford Road junction with Brox Road and head towards the Otter roundabout. This section of the project has yet to be fully planned and we will be releasing information on this when it is available. It is anticipated however that between Brox and the roundabout, two way temporary signals will be used. Negotiating the Otter roundabout will be a major issue with regard to traffic and this needs careful consideration.

In summary it is planned to have the A320 clear of works between the end of November this year and the start of February next year.

For your information – something new and interesting at the Ottershaw Village Hall:-

“Just letting you know about a new venture starting in Brook Hall on Friday 21st October.

Curzon Country Cinema, run by Barrie Gilbert (a retired cinema projectionist), will be showing three separate films, all at reduced prices, throughout the day.  Starting with “The Lady in the Van”, starring Maggie Smith at £4.00 a head (can’t be bad!).

Poster attached with details of all three films.

The intention is to show films on a regular basis, once a month Sept – May (excluding December) if he gets enough interest.  They are all very recent films and will be shown on a wide screen (his own, not the Hall’s) which practically fills the width of the stage.

You can book online at www.curzoncountrycinema.co.uk or pay at the door (depending on availability of seats).

Please spread the word amongst friends and neighbours and hope to see you there. “
