Roads Project Update

There has been no activity on resurfacing the island roads since the works on Garrison Lane just over 2 weeks ago because our efforts have been concentrated on the airport.

You may have noticed on Friday afternoon that equipment was brought to town and preparation works have been undertaken on Back Lane from the Methodist Church in Well Cross. Preparation works comprise selective planing of the existing road surface, the raising of any manhole covers, valve covers and kerbs so all will be level with the new surface.

On Saturday 16th August we will undertake similar preparation work on Rams Valley and Town Hall Square. This will be followed on Sunday 17th August with further preparation work on the remainder of Town Hall Square and Silver Street.

On Monday 18th August and Tuesday 19th August the areas prepared on the previous 3 days will be resurfaced. The order of surfacing will be the same as the order of preparation so that any roads or streets are left in the "prepared" state for the minimum amount of time.

Work will be done during the day and from Saturday onwards works will commence at 8 am and finish at approximately 6 or 7 pm (1800 or 1900).

Please take extra care when driving, cycling and walking when the roadway is in the prepared, planed state as ironwork will protrude above the existing surface. Not all raised covers will have individual warning signs.

Lagan Construction Ltd sincerely apologises for any disturbance this essential operation causes and thanks you in advance for your continuing co-operation and forbearance.
