From Monday 24 June 2019 road reconstruction and resurfacing work will be taking place in Shiphay Lane, Torquay, between Diary Hill and Collaton Road. The works will take up to eight weeks to complete.
For the works to be carried out, there will be a mixture of traffic lights and road closures which will help to reduce the impact and the disruption to local traffic.
Cabinet Member for Infrastructure, Environment and Culture, Councillor Mike Morey, said: “As part of our continuous commitment to structural maintenance across the Bay, these works are necessary and need to be carried out. We are aware these works will be disruptive, so we ask anyone who needs to use this area during this time to look at taking a different route. Local schools and the hospital have been notified and we will work with our contractor to minimise the disruption as much as possible.”
The work, which is costing around £160,000, will be delivered by Torbay Council’s surfacing partner CORMAC Contracting Ltd.
Torbay council said on Facebook: “We are aware these works will be disruptive, and we will be working with our contractor to minimise this as much as possible, but they are necessary & need to be carried out. We ask anyone who needs to use this area during this time to look at taking a different route.”
