The A602 Scheme includes improvements to the roundabout at the A119 junction near Watton-at-Stone and construction of a new 2.5km road alignment between Watton-at-Stone and Stoneyhills. These improvements will address the current problems of delays at the A119 junction, and poor visibility and sub-standard bends on the Ware Road. The road realignment works include 60,000m3 of earthworks and the construction of a new 27m span bridge over the Dane End Tributary. The scheme includes a cycle path connecting existing side roads and extensive landscaping of the surrounding area.
The visit will commence with a 20 minute presentation on the overall scheme including the engineering and environmental aspects of the works. There will then be an opportunity to visit parts of the site to see ongoing construction activities. Exact activities will be programme dependant but are likely to include earthworks and reinforced concrete bridge construction.
Information on Open Doors 2022 will be released shortly
