Information for local people

If it rains or is either too hot (temperatures over around 30°C) or too cold (temperatures below around 10°C) then we will not be able to carry out the work. We will reschedule these and let you know via the signs on site as to when the works will happen.

If you need vehicle access discuss this with the team on site to see if this is possible. We will always allow access for emergency vehicles. Pedestrian access will be maintained.

Prior to the surfacing works, we will be carrying out repairs to granite setts. These works will take place 4-12 July under temporary traffic lights.

Micro asphalt is a thin surfacing that is mixed in a lorry and laid on top of the existing road surface.

Micro asphalt seals and waterproofs the road and improves the skid resistance and ride quality, extending the life of the road by up 10 years.

We will return around two weeks after the micro-asphalt has been laid to raise any iron work that is low and reinstate any lining.

There will be ‘no parking’ signs and cones on site to advise where parking is restricted.
