Roadworks between Esplanade East and Dow St
The works begun on the 2 December 2008 are scheduled to be completed by Friday 13 March 2009. The completion time for the project had to be extended by approximately 2-3 weeks due the re-work associated with the kerb and channel and the extreme weather conditions that had been experienced over the preceding few weeks.
A section of approximately 30m of concrete kerb and channel had to be removed and reconstructed, at the contractor’s expense, as it did not meet Council’s standards. The budget is not affected.
The purposes of the works are to:
- make it easier to cross the road
- make provision for cyclists
- slow traffic
- provide 11 extra parking spaces see post of 17 February
