Safety Notice
DO NOT WALK ON THE NEWLY LAID, HOT SURFACE
Please take care when walking on the surface as it may take time to fully cool.
 If you walk or cycle on the road and you get bitumen on your clothes or shoes, it can be removed with an appropriate cleaner.
Look out for your pets walking on the new surface especially if your cat is out roaming or when walking your dog.

Staying safe during the Coronavirus Pandemic
Please help us stay safe and continue working during the pandemic. We have reviewed the way we work to keep the public and staff safe. If you are near where we are working, please follow the guidelines set by the government.

 

When are the works taking place?
The works will start on Thursday 8 April and will take up to 13 working days/nights to complete, weather permitting.
Preparatory works will begin on Thursday 8 April for two days. Our working hours for day works are 9:30am—3:30pm.
There will be night time closures from Monday 12 April (please see opposite page for details). Our working hours for night works will be 9pm—5am. Diversions will be in place.

There will be no weekend working and the road will be reopened during the day.

What impact could the roadworks have on me?
Road users are advised to expect some delays and use alternative routes where possible. Please also allow extra time for journeys.

We will endeavour to maintain vehicular access for businesses, however, this will be restricted or delayed at times. Footways will be open for pedestrians.

Will the work be noisy?
Some aspects of this work will be noisy, mostly the excavation of the road surface which starts on Monday 12 April. There will also be bleepers from our vehicles when reversing, these are mandatory for health and safety reasons. We will endeavour to keep all noise to a minimum and your patience on this matter is appreciated.

Why are you doing this?
We are contracted to maintain the roads and pavements in the city.
