Brendan Colarossi, the Council’s Team Leader for Engineering, Design and Management, said: “Residents in the area are advised that, whilst access to resident’s vehicles will be maintained as much as possible, there will be periods of time where there will be no access to driveways.

“If anyone has any specific access/mobility requirements, please don’t hesitate to get in touch via 01429 284285 and we will do our best to support in any way that we can.”

If any of the works fall on a day when scheduled bin collections are due, residents should present bins no later than 7.30am on the day of collection. They are also advised that scheduled works may be delayed in the event of adverse weather conditions.

The council has apologised for any inconvenience. An interactive map showing a number of roadwork schemes that will take place is available.
