Home Articles Road Closure – New Road (6th October 2018)

0 959


The Parish Council have been notified that New Road will be shut, for a period of two weeks, beginning on the 6th October.

This is to allow the construction of an additional manhole to access the extending sewerage system.

The proposed diversion route is via Lidgett Lane.

The Parish Council have challenged this diversion and expressed the serious safety concerns they have, noting that they do not believe Lidgett Lane is ‘fit for purpose’.

Unfortunately, BMBC have chosen to proceed with this as the advertised diversion route.

We ask that residents please take extra care during the road closure, and reduce their speed on Lidgett Lane, in an attempt to lower the risks when passing vehicles and pedestrians.

An alternative route would be advised during this period.
