HIGHWAYS bosses have said plans for a new roundabout at an accident blackspot could be released later this year.

Last week councillors welcomed news a long-awaited roundabout could be built on the A120 near Hare Green as early as 2015.

A Highways Agency spokesman has confirmed the project to build a roundaboout is still ongoing but said the designs have not been completed.

She said: "We have further design work to complete before proposals are confirmed, and we plan to present proposals to the local community later this year."
