All of the works will be carried out under road closure conditions with the relevant roads being closed from 09:30 to 15:30, Monday to Friday of each week.

Where possible, pedestrian access will be maintained, however due to the requirements of social distancing and to keep the public and workforce as safe as possible there may be times when the roads are completely closed.
