Surface dressing update – Thursday 29 July

Surface dressing update – Thursday 29 July
28 July 2021

Our roads crews are hoping to complete surface dressing in St Margaret’s Hope on Thursday 29 July – weather permitting.

Two sections of St Margaret’s Road remain to be surface dressed – and the aim is to carry out the work at times that avoid disruption to ferry traffic.

A signed diversion will be in place while surface dressing takes place on St Margaret’s Road between the junctions with Doctor’s Road and Church Road.

Work on the short section between the A961 and the top of Church Road will mean that the junction with the main road is temporarily closed for a brief period – but our crews will do all they can to complete the task as quickly as possible.

We thank residents and drivers for their patience and co-operation while this important work is carried out.

Drivers are reminded for everyone's safety to observe the speed limits in place on newly dressed roads. Any changes will be posted on the OIC Updates Facebook page, and on Twitter @ OIC_Roads
