We are replacing the existing footway on Normanton Road between Grove Street and Lowerdale Road. The existing slabs will be removed and replaced with a new tarmac surface.
This section of footway is very poor and we are continually having to repair it to keep it safe for pedestrians in this busy district centre.
We are completing surveys and a detailed design of the road this year. When funding becomes available, we will have a scheme ready to deliver.
Work is planned to commence on Monday 12th September 2016. Work will be completed Monday to Friday from 8.30am till 3.30pm.
There will have to be some early Sunday working required at some key access points. Those likely to be affected will be made aware well in advance and temporary traffic management will be in place.
We estimate that the work will take approximately 11 weeks, however this is subject to good weather and no unforeseen problems we may encounter along the way.
We will start at the junction of Grove Street and work down to Harriet Street. We will then move to the opposite side of the road and work from Belgrave Street to Moore Street. We will continue to work in short sections in this manner until we reach the pedestrian crossing by Whiston Street.
Normanton Road will remain open at all times, but there will be temporary traffic lights in place during the work. As a result journeys may take a little longer.
Temporary traffic management will be in place to allow us to complete the work safely and efficiently. Temporary footways will be created to allow pedestrian access. Marshals will be on hand every day to guide customers safely to where they need to go. The temporary traffic management will be erected each morning and removed each evening.
Some parking bays, side streets and bus stops will temporarily out of use when we reach that section of footway. Signs will be in place and marshals will assist.
Yes, access in and out of businesses will continue.
When work is taking place outside there will be a few minutes whilst we lift slabs and make the area safe ready for tarmacing. Marshals will be on hand to guide customers around the work.
We are contacting businesses directly to make individual access arrangements for deliveries where necessary.
We are not able to compensate for loss of earnings as current UK legislation expressly rules out compensation for road maintenance schemes. You can find more details on compensation for loss of business from road works on the House of Commons Library’s website.
To help businesses we are:
Collections will continue to operate as normal.
All goods will need to be clear of the public highway to allow us to access the back of the footway and complete a neat and tidy job.
We understand the work will cause some disruption to residents and thank residents in advance for their patience and understanding.
Work is taking place between the times of 8.30am and 3.30pm to allow us to complete with as little disruption as possible.

Residents and visitors
Bus services will continue as usual, however some bus stops will not be available. While work takes place alternate bus stops on the route will be provided as close to the usual one as possible. Marshals will point out your closest bus stop in both directions. Please allow a little extra time for your journey for the duration of the work.
Arriva services 4, 4a and 7 will operate as normal.

When work approaches side streets, these will have to be closed temporarily to allow work to take place safely. Any temporary closure will be on for a short duration and diversion routes will be clearly signed.
Vehicles and pedestrians can still access Normanton Road.

If you can park away from Normanton Road and walk to your preferred shop, this will help greatly. Please observe the advice and guidance of the traffic marshals who are there to ensure your safety.
