Church Lane, Edges Lane, Hall Lane and Parkers Lane in Long Stratton to be closed to allow construction of new bypass

Construction work on the new Long Stratton Bypass is due to start from Monday 22 April 2024, with expected completion in Autumn 2025.

Following recent advance works to prepare the site it is now necessary to close all side roads the new route will cross.

Church Lane, Edge’s Lane, Hall Lane and Parkers Lane will therefore be closed for the duration of the works. Local diversions via suitable routes will be signed on the ground.

On completion, Hall Lane will bridge over the bypass and Church Lane will be realigned and connected to a new roundabout at the northern end of the route. Parkers Lane will be realigned to form a link from the existing A140 to a roundabout toward the southern end of the bypass.

The new road also crosses several local footpaths. All of these will also need to be closed but at least two will be available throughout the works, using signed diversions where needed. All diversion routes will also be available on request.

Some future temporary traffic management will be needed on the A140 to join the new bypass to the existing road network and some short-term road closures will also be necessary for surfacing. Further details on this will be provided at a later stage.

Access will be maintained throughout for residents/businesses located within the works areas, but some minor delays be experienced whilst key activities are in progress.

We understand any disruption on the roads is frustrating and will be working closely with our contractors throughout the project to minimise this as much as possible.

If you do have any queries or concerns, then please contact a member of the team on the details below.

You can also sign up for email updates on the wider project via the main project webpage.

The County Council thanks the public for their patience while this work is carried out.
