High Street in Walshaw - resurfacing scheme

About the scheme

We plan to resurface the carriageway on High Street. These works may include footway works and drainage repairs.

Planned start and finish date of the scheme

  • Planned start date - 29 February 2020.
  • Proposed completion date - 5 April 2020.

Details of the scheme and traffic management

  • All works will take place at weekend between 9am and 4pm.
  • Sections of High Street will be closed to through traffic during the works with diversions put in place.
  • Access to adjoining streets may be restricted for short periods of time during the works.

Unfortunately, when undertaking a scheme of this nature, some disruption is unavoidable; we will try to reduce this disruption as much as possible.
