We are pleased to confirm all works are progressing well and are currently hitting timescales agreed.

Where the entrance to The Paddocks will be closed to all traffic on Wednesday 21st June between approximately 10am and 12pm (2 hours) please do make arrangements to be at your chosen destination at this time as there will be no vehicle access other than emergency vehicles.  

Our sub-contractors will continue to liaise with residents in the areas affected and maintain traffic management systems on site to facilitate works. The final stages following surfacing works will be to carry out Highway inspections, de-mobilisation of compound and reinstatement of POS area and planting as required.

We thank you for your ongoing co-operation during these works. If you have any queries relating to this information, please contact us via [email protected]


Road binder course/surface cause is the build-up of layers for the road construction below the final surfacing course.

Sub-contractors are Conro & Sons and they will letter drop in areas they are working.

The traffic management system will vary depending on the type of work, for some areas the machinery is larger and so may have to part close sections of road/half width carriageways, it will be suited to the operation in hand.
