These works will create a significant amount of noise. For the duration of the works, the road will be closed and all traffic will be diverted around the area whilst the closures are in place. There may be periods of time when access to properties by vehicle will be unachievable.
Please note that adverse weather conditions or plant / delivery problems may affect these times and dates. Although alternative routes will be signposted whilst the works are in progress, it is possible that delays may occur on the surrounding network.
