Streets Ahead information for the resurfacing of Westbury Avenue

Our reference: CA5 – Westbury Avenue

Dear Resident/Business

Road Resurfacing Work

We will soon be resurfacing a section of Westbury Avenue as part of the Council’s Streets Ahead highway improvement programme.

This work is due to start mid-May and will last approximately 1 day, between the hours of 7am-7pm, Monday – Friday only.  In addition, we will need to return to refresh any existing road markings as necessary.

Temporary road signs will be displayed for a minimum of five days before work starts, confirming the dates and any associated parking restrictions or road closures.  The signs show a “work window” of dates and times when we are permitted to carry out our works.  However, we may not be on site for the full duration shown.  Unfortunately, we are unable to be more specific about days, as our  schedule can be affected by unforeseen circumstances, and it may be necessary to delay the start date at short notice. Our programme is heavily dependent on the weather, for example, it is preferable not to lay road surface in cold weather and can be unsafe for us to work in very wet conditions.

Please note that we will need to close the road to complete these works and there will be no on-street parking during working hours. Vehicles left on-street may be towed away and you would need to pay a fee to have your vehicle released.

If you are away during the period in which the works are scheduled to take place, please avoid parking your car on the road.

You may leave your vehicle on your drive during our works, but vehicle access will not be allowed, and we apologise to everyone landlocked by our works, however, it is vital that we safeguard you and our operatives and complete our works quickly and unhindered.  Pedestrian access and access for emergency vehicles will be available at all times.
