These will include resurfacing of the road and pavement on Bulk Road between St Leonard’s Gate and Caton Road and an upgrade to the traffic signals at the Bulk Road/Caton Road junction.

Specifically this will be a phase on the lights for pedestrians to cross Bulk Road, an uncontrolled pedestrian crossing across Bulk Road near to the junction of St Leonard’s Gate, and a loading-only parking bay on Bulk Road outside the accommodation.
