General Arrangement – Bridge Street/Main Street Junction
It is hoped that work will start on the Bridge Street/Main Street junction on the 29th October with a 6 week construction period, end date 11th December. This will generally be a night time scheme as most works will require a STOP/ GO system to have one lane closed. Hours permitted for this are 8pm to 6am. Road closures will be permitted for resurfacing works and these will take place at night time 8pm to 6 am. Diversions will be via M11 or via Avoca/Woodenbridge. Any queries can be addressed to Margaret Hartnett at firstname.lastname@example.org.
