The council’s cabinet member for Highways Phil Bibby said: “It’s important developers make improvements to our transport network when they’re building new homes, as otherwise pressure on the road network will only increase.
“While these roadworks will inevitably cause some disruption, in the long term they’ll help keep traffic flowing on this busy road.”
