The scheme to tackle congestion and improve traffic flows in the Pershore area has now started.
Works at Pinvin Junction are part of the wider Pershore Infrastructure Improvement Scheme – a programme of works aimed at improving traffic links and reducing congestion in and around Pershore.
Initial works near the junction will include the setting-up of the site compound and the site boundaries. Works will then move on to the installation of a new slip road from Pinvin Main Street to the A44 and widening works on the approaches to the junction.
The improvements to Pinvin Junction have been made possible following a £5m investment from Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) via the Government’s Growth Deal.
Gary Woodman, Chief Executive of Worcestershire LEP, said: “We’re delighted that work is now underway on improvements to the Pinvin Junction. This work will help to reduce congestion on the roads and keep our thriving businesses moving. By investing heavily in the county’s transport infrastructure, we are helping to strengthen Worcestershire’s reputation as a connected county.”
