As part of the ongoing works to the junction of Sea Road & Alexandra Road, work will start today to replace existing areas of footway outside The Dolphin site. These works will will take approximately four weeks to complete. During this phase of works, the traffic management arrangements which were used for High Street will be partially re-introduced, this will include:
- The closure of Alexandra Road (northbound) between Market Street and the High Street
- Vehicular traffic will be diverted through Market Place and St Peter’s Avenue
- Existing bus stands outside the Post Office, High Street, will be temporarily closed during this works phase.
As previously reported, the work is part of road safety improvements at the Sea Road / Alexandra Road junction. A new central traffic island and roundabout will be constructed with a signal-controlled pedestrian crossing to replace the uncontrolled crossing on Alexandra Road. The new crossing will be located just south of the roundabout.
