A five month programme to repair the drainage system along the north and southbound carriageways of the A49 in Leominster will start at the end of this month.

Work, between the A49/A44 roundabout and A49 Long Wood, is due to start on August 29 and is likely to take approximately five months, depending on weather conditions.

It will involve lane closures and temporary traffic lights, which will be in operation 24 hours a day at various locations along the A49 as the work progresses along the carriageway.

Highways Agency project sponsor, Laura Mobley, said: “This is routine, yet essential work, to make sure the drainage system on this section of the A49 is maintained in a good condition, preventing the carriageway flooding and generally enhancing safety for road users.”
