The latest phase of the Fieldhead regeneration project starts on Wednesday (24 February), when work starts on changing the layout of Lowood Lane to address current traffic problems and complement the new buildings.

So that this work can be done, a small section of Lowood Lane opposite the old shops will have to be closed for around two months. The shops will remain open throughout the project and everyone will still be able to get to their houses.
During the closure, traffic will be diverted along Haworth and Briarmains Road. Bus service diversions will be displayed on bus stops on the estate.
The road closure will cause some disruption, but all those involved in the regeneration project are working to keep this to a minimum.
More detailed plans of the regeneration scheme are available in the community centre and at Batley Town Hall.
