Large-scale improvement works at the A171 Swans Corner Roundabout in the Nunthorpe area are set to begin.
The improvements are designed to accommodate future traffic growth and involves removing the existing roundabout and replacing it with a lozenge-shaped island as well as widening approach roads.
In addition, pedestrian crossing facilities will be installed on both Ormesby Bank and the A1043 Nunthorpe Bypass.
The work will be carried out by North East firm Esh Construction on behalf of the council. Traffic management will be in place for safety reasons.
The works will enable the roundabout to better accommodate both existing and future traffic growth resulting in reduced traffic congestion and quicker journey times.
