Zig Zag Road junction roadworks – 16th to 21st Dec

Please avoid using the Zig Zag Road/ Welcomes Road junction from between Wednesday 16th and Monday 21st December. 

The very informal logistics plan is as follows:

1. Wednesday 16th December at about noon the contractor will start to gun off the surface of the road in the bellmouth of Welcomes Road and 5m into Zig Zag Road

2. Thursday and Friday 17th and 18th December the work will continue and  concrete edging installed along  the hedge line fronting Zig Zag Road and which belongs to 70 Welcomes Road.  The new edging will support the compaction of the new tarmac.

3. Saturday and Sunday the junction will be CLOSED to vehicular traffic to allow the new surface to ‘go off’. No motorised traffic particularly HGVs must drive over the new surface for 48 hours.

4. Early Monday morning the contractor will remove signage  closing the road so the refuse lorry can pass.

The contractor will be allowing traffic to use the junction from Wednesday to Friday but for safety reasons if you can avoid the junction by using Abbots Lane and Uplands Road that would be very much appreciated.

The road will be passable to pedestrians at all times including over the weekend. Apologies for the short notice but these jobs are very much dependent on when the road materials become available.
