College Road Closure for Resurfacing Works

Please find below details that have been received of a temporary road closure for resurfacing works at College Road.

Resurfacing work is planned for the weekends of 14th to 15th September and 21st to 22nd September for two consecutive weekends starting from 06:00hrs from Saturday morning through to 21:00hrs on the Sunday evening at the junction of Shrewsbury Road and College Road.

As there is no wish to do this work overnight, a closure of College Road is planned over the two weekends from the junction of College Road and Hawthorne Grove with no through road onto Shrewsbury Road. Access to frontages will be permitted during the closure via the Middleton Road/College Road Junction.

The road will be closed over the two consecutive weekends so that work can be done while ensuring the safety of the workforce and the general public.

The proposals are:

Saturday 14th September 2019 - Traffic management will be setup and College Road will be closed from 06:00hrs to allow the existing road surface to be removed and the new road surface to be laid.

Sunday 15th September 2019 - Continuation of laying the new road surface upto the new roundabout and leaving the road material to set before removing the closure by 21:00hrs.

Saturday 21st & Sunday 22nd September 2019 - Contingency weekend closure in the event that the new road material cannot be laid due to inclement weather.

Emergency access will be maintained at all times.

Traffic management marshals shall be on hand to provide information to waiting vehicles and to assist any pedestrian movements. Additional signage will also be provided showing the alternative diversion route.
