Changes to Muckley Corner

The Muckley Corner roundabout is an issue which regularly appears in my casework.  The area is confusing for drivers passing through.

I have been pressing the Highways Agency to review the site and see what changes can be implemented and have a brief update for you on this issue.

The Highways Agency have confirmed that they will be carrying out work on the roundabout to refresh road markings and replace the reflective studs to help make it easier for drivers to pass through.

Work begins from 20th May and is scheduled to finish by the 20th June.  However the Highways Agency want to try to keep the roundabout open and go through the work in phases.  Diversion routes will be used instead. 

I understand this is part of ongoing work and I will continue to work closely with them and do what I can to seek improvements to make this roundabout easier and safer to use.
