As with the earlier weeks, please allow extra travelling time due to traffic works on the A1156 West of Trinity Park between the St Augustine’s Roundabout and Sainsbury’s Warren Heath. Traffic has been very slow when exiting junction 57 of the A14 after 4.30pm, road works are due to continue until October.

It is best to use junction 58 and pass the Seven Hills Crematorium and on to Trinity Park from the East on the A1156. See Map bottom right of this email.
