To facilitate these works, there will be traffic management in place consisting of a full road closure and bus stop suspensions on Old Lodge Lane during the planned times. During the weekend only phase of the works, Old Lodge Lane will be closed from 2300 Friday to Monday 0500. During the mid-week night works, Old Lodge Lane will be closed from 2330 to 0500 each night from Monday to Friday.
Pedestrian will still be able to walk from one side of the structure to the other within a protected scaffold tunnel during closures. BAM will install additional signage to ensure customers know businesses are still open as usual. During the four weekend closures, there will be a shuttle bus service operating in substitute of the normal bus services.
Shuttle bus services will operate as follows:
- Shuttle buses will operate on Saturdays and Sundays from 5:30 am to 11:00 pm during the weekend closures.
- The shuttle bus will travel up and down Old Lodge, stopping at each bus stop from Reedham Station to New Valley School.
- A separate bus service will run from Old Lodge Lane at the bridge to Tesco Extra in Purely. This bus will also stop at the Grovesdale bus stop on the way to Tesco.
- During mid-week night closures, the last bus service passing through Old Lodge Lane will be at 11:30 pm. The normal bus service will resume at 5:30 am.
