WARWICKSHIRE County Council has announced plans for carriageway resurfacing works taking place in Nuneaton.

Work will start on the A444 Griff Way (inbound and outbound) from Griff Island to Hospital Island, and the A444 Bedworth Bypass (inbound and outbound) from Griff Island to Walsingham Drive Island in Nuneaton on July, 21.

Drainage work – which will only take place on Sundays to minimise disturbance – will take place while the resurfacing will then begin on August 8.

Resurfacing is scheduled to continue for 28 consecutive nights, excluding August bank holiday, between and

The upcoming works will involve removing and replacing the existing road surface to a depth of 110mm across the entire carriageway.

Coun Jan Matecki, Warwickshire County Council portfolio holder for transport and planning, said: “We have carefully assessed the needs of the A444 Nuneaton corridor and identified these works as a priority for the county.

“Resurfacing this key route will ensure the approach to Nuneaton reflects our ambition for the town centre and that the carriageway is safe for the high volume of traffic it serves.

“We have scheduled work to cause minimal disruption to road users and we thank people in anticipation of their understanding while the work is ongoing.”

Access to Bermuda Village from the A444 will be closed during construction and other access points will be established in collaboration with local residents.

The project will be delivered in phases, as outlined below:
