Lime Street Pedestrian Safety Improvement Works – UPDATE 12 OCT

LIME STREET AND MILL LANE PEDESTRIAN SAFETY PROJECT
UPDATE 11 OCTOBER 2017

We have passed on to the Project Manager the concerns expressed at Monday’s Parish Council meeting. The clearance of the bank is an essential part of the scheme and the alternative is to cancel the entire project.

We have now been advised – and you will have seen the road closure sign board – that the first phase to clear the bank will start on Monday 23 October and last for one week. A traffic manager will be on site during the works and will allow access to residents and businesses whilst the works are in progress and when it is safe to do so – this may mean waiting, for example, while machinery is operating by the road. This for your own safety.

We are waiting for confirmation as to the extent of the closure of Lime Street and have asked them to consider closing the minimum extent where they are specifically working. We hope to hear further on Thursday.

Further information will be posted here and on the notice boards – at the Parish office, The Cross and Stogursey Lane. A copy of the plan is available to view in the Parish Office and on the website at www.netherstowey-pc.gov.uk/limestreet-works

We do not underestimate the inconvenience this will cause everyone, but would ask for your forbearance for improvements that will be of benefit to the whole village in the long run. If you have a specific need for access during the period of the closure (eg for carers’ visits, deliveries to businesses, etc.) you should contact the Parish Office as soon as possible so that we can discuss appropriate arrangements with you and with the engineering team.
