Due to resource issues in another part of the city these works have been delayed and will take place from the end of November 2016 until March 2017. 

We apologise for the delay and any inconvenience this may cause. For more information on the street lighting upgrades.


Works to damaged kerbs will start in the New Year.


Resurfacing works will start in February 2017 with roads starting in late Autumn.
