The works will go ahead between the hours of:

  • 8.00am to 11.30pm Wednesday 25th November 2020
  • 8.00am to 5.00pm Thursday 26th & Friday 27th November 2020
  • PROVISIONAL – 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Saturday 28th November 2020 if bad weather has affected the programme.

During the road closure periods a signed diversion will be available.

Due to the narrowness of the carriageway and material being used emergency vehicles will NOT be allowed through the site. 

These works are susceptible to rain and temperature and will have to be rescheduled if weather conditions are not favourable. Information boards will be erected on site and will be updated as and when required if the programme changes.
