Works will be carried out under a Road Closure between 07.30am - 17.30pm, please expect delays in this area during the works.

Access to properties/businesses along this road may be restricted during these times but Traffic Management operatives will assist when necessary and safe to do so. Passes will be provided to all residents within the closure to present to the Gatemen during the closures to allow access.

Warning: When access is granted through the road closure please be mindful there will be workforce working within the closure on the carriageway, please ensure that speed through the area is to a minimum to ensure the safety of yourselves and the workforce at all times.

You should also be aware that:

  • The works will involve the use of hot bituminous materials which may stick to footwear or tyres. Please therefore avoid walking or driving across newly laid surfaces.
  • There will be excavations which will be barriered off to prevent any potential hazards
  • The process involves the use of heavy construction machinery. You are advised not to allow children to run or play either on or near these works.
  • Designated crossing points will be installed and clearly marked to allow safe crossing of road during all operations.
  • Access to frontages only but there may be a restriction on entry at times due to the operations taking place, gatemen will be on site to advise and allow entry.
  • Additional signage to the plans will be in place for the businesses, tourists and cyclists

It would be greatly appreciated if all cars and vehicles could be parked off the road during the working hours as highlighted above to enable these works to proceed with the minimum of delay during this period.

Please do not hesitate to seek guidance during the undertaking of the above work from the designated marshals who are easily identified by the wearing of blue armbands
