Major planned projects

Over the next few years we’re improving key routes that are in poor condition and carry large volumes of traffic. Unfortunately, there will be short-term disruption but we’ll do everything we can to keep things moving. Visit the Better Roads pages for more information or follow the project on Twitter @BetterRoadsLiv.
