HCC say this is a shift from reactive to planned maintenance which they believe will be more cost effective in the long run, making roads more resilient to the effects of extreme weather and increasingly heavy traffic.
From Monday 19th March works on gully and cover replacements together with some minor kerb work will be undertaken from the junction with London Street to King’s Walk.
This work is expected to last 5 working days, during which time it will be vital that vehicles are not parked in the areas denoted by ‘no waiting cones’ and ‘no parking signs’, as this will seriously hamper the progress of works.
The main resurfacing works will follow later. This is likely to be 10th – 13th, and the 15th April, which will involve the closure of Newbury Street with access being limited. In addition on Sunday 15th April London Street will be closed.
Further details are awaited.
