This month’s video shows work being completed on the GAR’s junction with Burton Road, which was reopened to motorists’s earlier this month.

Despite being in a second lockdown during November, work continued on the bypass after the Government made it clear that construction work wouldn’t be suspended as before.

The GAR works are scheduled to be completed, and the access road open to motorists, by Autumn 2021



  • Wow look how quickly they are destroying the green land the views, habitat for animals and the views. I hope they are so proud of themselves, as for the drone can it be used to see if those responsible have a brain and a heart and have considered what they are doing at all please?

  • Awful. I bet the home owners of the isolated houses are not happy now, that road will de crease value of their properties by a lot.
    I went to go on a walk on the fields where the road goes theough, I was disappointed to find how much of the trail I used to walk, has gone now because of the humongous road they’ve dug out. Does it really need to be 2 miles wide?
