Road Resurfacing Update - 26th June

Road at Porthmellon

On Thursday resurfacing works will take place on Telegraph Road, starting from the entrance to Porth Mellon Industrial Estate and working towards the top of the hill by the old school. With the variable road widths on this section the road will be closed until the works are finished, which is likely to be around 5pm.

Preparation works will continue in the Jerusalem Terrace / Garrison Lane area and most likely on the link road from the old school to St Mary’s church. 

Route advice

All traffic from Hugh Town to and from both the airport and the country areas will have to pass through Old Town. As the asphalt on Telegraph Road lad on Wednesday is still fresh and not fully oxidised we will run our tractors and trailers through Old Town. To help ease traffic congestion and the need to reverse in the narrow sections we will use flag men with stop and go boards using radios to communicate with each other. Please follow instructions given. Please note that the programme can change due to weather and operational reasons but we do not anticipate any change in the short term works described.

Lagan Construction Ltd sincerely apologises for any disturbance during these works and thanks you in advance for your co-operation and forbearance. Please contact us on 07825 167569 if there are any problems during this work.
