Local roadworks

The closure of the A59 at Kexgill/Blubberhouses has now been lifted – although I am sure that some of you will already be aware of this.

This means that works that had been delayed will now go ahead.

From 15/03/16 to 17/03/16  Northern Power Grid will be carrying out works, again, outside the pharmacy so they can install their supply to the renovated apartments. These works are more extensive and will be carried out over 3 days 9.30am to 3.30pm to avoid the morning and evening peaks. Stop/ go boards will be used to control traffic.
