If you have travelled up Terry Avenue or across Millennium Bridge this week you’ll have noticed that works to form the construction compound for the Environment Agency’s flood defence works for Clementhorpe. This is in preparation for the main works, and closure of Terry Avenue for 12 months, starting from the 1st of April. So what exactly is happening? And what do you need to know if you travel through this area? We’ve gone through the Environment Agency’s Construction Traffic Management Plan (CTMP) and outlined the key points on how it will affect cycling in the area.
