Brinklow roundabout in Kingston is set to be resurfaced as part of a major upgrade project slated for April.

The roundabout in question is situated where the H8 Standing Way intersects with the V11 Tongwell Street.

The work is designed to improve defects in the roads which have worsen during prolonged spells of cold, wet weather conditions.

Major repair work is planned for Brinklow roundabout in April

The work will take place during off peak times between 9:30am and 4pm each day. A local diversion route will be in place during this time and clear signage will be in place to assist road users.

Councillor Emily Darlington, said: “Literally thousands of vehicles including many HGVs use this roundabout each day, so we know how important it is to get this work done properly and quickly.”

This project has been in the works for a while and was delayed due to complications relating to the pandemic.

With workers waiting until conditions are safe for major repairs to be taken on, only minor changes have been made to these defects in the past year.

The work will also allow checks to be undertaken on street lights, with further repairs made where necessary.
