Reconstruction work to begin on Mowbray RoadPublished Wednesday, 31st July 2019
Drivers are advised that a full road reconstruction will be carried out on Mowbray Road during the coming months.
Work will begin on Monday 5th August, and the reconstruction works will take place in sections along the road. Each section will be completed in phases to minimise disruption, and each phase is expected to take approximately two weeks to complete.
The first section affected is between the junctions of Kesteven Road and Cranwell Road (both junctions will remain open to traffic), and is expected to take approximately twelve weeks to complete. There will be six phases within this section.
Properties will be affected by the various phases as follows:
Phase 1 – 30 – 38/ 39 – 51
Phase 2 – 40 – 48/ 53 – 61
Phase 3 – 50 – 56/ 63 – 71
Phase 4 – 58 – 66/ 73 – 85
Phase 5 – 26 – 28/ 29 – 37
Phase 6 – 16 – 24/ 19 – 27
Works will begin daily at 7.30am and finish at 4.30pm. Whilst the works are carried out, the full section of road will be closed to normal traffic. Access will be maintained for residents, deliveries and big wagons only, and diversion routes will be in place with signs to inform drivers.
Brendan Colarossi, the Council’s Team Leader for Engineering, Design and Management, said: “Residents in the area are advised that, whilst access to resident’s vehicles will be maintained as much as possible, there will be periods of time where there will be no access to driveways. This will be approximately two weeks per phase.
“If anyone has any specific access/mobility requirements, please don’t hesitate to get in touch via 01429 284285 and we will do our best to support in any way that we can.”
If any of the below works fall on a day when normal scheduled bin collections are due, please ensure that bins are presented by no later than 7.30am on the day of collection.
Residents should also be advised that scheduled works may be delayed in the event of adverse weather conditions. The Council apologises for any inconvenience which this essential resurfacing work may cause.
