Road resurfacing scheme to get underway on Blenheim Drive
Published: 30 April 2020
A resurfacing scheme on Blenheim Drive, Allestree will begin on Monday 11th May. The work will also include work to repair and replace kerbs where needed and will to take up to five weeks to complete.
The repairs will be carried out in two phases. Firstly, from Allestree Lane junction to Askerfield Avenue junction and then from Askerfield Avenue junction to Robin Croft junction.
A road closure will be in place throughout and diversion routes will be in place at all times (See below). Access to homes and businesses will always be maintained and refuse collections will continue as normal. Traffic Marshals will be on hand to direct residents as necessary although there may be short delays during certain times of operation.
Works are being completed by Thomas Bow Ltd on behalf of Derby City Council and as the coronavirus pandemic continues social distancing will be maintained on site as much as possible, but any concerns about social distancing on site should be reported to the Public Protection Officers.
Councillor Jonathan Smale, Cabinet Member for Communities, Neighbourhoods and Streetpride commented:
We’ve invested additional funding into our highways budget to enable us to undertake more of these essential resurfacing schemes. We know that schemes like this can be disruptive, but we hope that residents will agree that the long-term benefits to their neighbourhood are worth the short-term disruption and that the work is very much needed.
The dates and timescales are subject to change depending on Government advice relating to coronavirus and other factors such as weather or other urgent repairs.
