Forches Cross road will become permanently closed (from Mid-June 2022) when the new Link Road is complete. Currently, it is only temporary closed as we excavate to install WPD (Western Power Distribution) Cable along this route.
When the installation of WPD Cable is complete, the road will be re-open again until the New Link Road is complete.
DCC are working out on the Permanent signs (Road Closed/New Road Layout ) and this will be ready before they officially close that section of the road & divert the traffic through the New Link Road.
Businesses are open as usual throughout this period and minor traffic interruption will be incurred during the diversions period.
