Stratford cattle market site roadworks to start

Alcester Road Warwickshire County Council said roadworks at the site would be finished in early 2014

More than seven months of roadworks are to be carried out in Stratford-upon-Avon as part of the redevelopment of the town's former cattle market site.

A new road to Stratford train station will be built and traffic lights will be put on Birmingham Road and Western Road, which will be resurfaced.

Warwickshire County Council said work would begin on Tuesday.

The authority rejected plans to build 214 homes on the former cattle market site last month.

Other road improvements will include a new signal-controlled junction on the Alcester Road near to the existing junction with Station Road.

Station Road will become pedestrianised and a new stairway will be built adjacent to the existing stairs linking Alcester Road to the train station.
