Dis­rup­tion alert over road­works

Warwickshire Telegraph - - NEWS - By ELIS SAND­FORD

NEW road­works were set to be­gin in Coven­try city and could cause rush hour dis­rup­tion.

Start­ing on Wed­nes­day, work to re­pair crash bar­ri­ers on Coven­try ring road is un­der­way.

And Coven­try City Coun­cil has warned that this will, in all like­li­hood, re­sult in de­lays.

The work is tak­ing place be­tween Junc­tions 5 and 6 with bar­ri­ers in the anti-clock­wise di­rec­tion and on the cen­tral reser­va­tion be­ing looked at.

This is the sec­tion of ring road near to the un­der­pass sec­tion which runs over Coven­try sta­tion square.

It is un­clear what caused dam­age to the crash bar­ri­ers or why they need re­pair­ing.

On Wed­nes­day there was some dis­rup­tion for mo­torists as work­ers pre­pared the sec­tion of car­riage­way for works.

Coven­try City Coun­cil is car­ry­ing out the works, which have re­sulted in a lane clo­sure.

The ring road is es­pe­cially busy dur­ing rush hour and it is ex­pected that this will add to the traf­fic woes for Coven­try com­muters.

Set to run be­tween 9.30am and 3.30pm, the works are ex­pected to be com­pleted on Mon­day af­ter­noon.
