Streets Ahead Resurfacing Works

Streets-Ahead-diagram-beigeResidents of Birley Moor Road, Linley Lane and Hopefield Avenue are receiving letters regarding the next stage of the Streets Ahead project on their roads. New street lighting columns are currently being installed on Hopefield Avenue and Linley Lane following the introduction of the new, white light, columns on Birley Moor Road. Other works will follow to reinstate the verges and repair pavements.  Now Amey, the council’s partner for the project, are notifying of the proposed resurfacing works for the road and footpaths. The works are planned from Woodhouse Road in Intake, through to Mosborough and incorporating Hopefield Avenue and Linley Lane.


This work will take place from 3 June to 18 August 2013 and we will need
to close some of the roads to carry out the work. Diversion routes will be in
place where needed. Pedestrian access and access for emergency vehicles
will be available at all times. Temporary signs will be displayed in the area five days before work starts, confirming the start date and expected duration of the work. Parking and access to properties, On-street parking and access to properties will be restricted on the roads being worked on, during working hours. Most roads will be open and on-street parking as normal outside of these hours. (The temporary signs on each road will tell you when on-street parking is restricted or unavailable).
It is very important that you make alternative arrangements for parking whilst
Amey are carrying out these highway improvement works. If you need vehicle
access to your property then this will be accommodated by the on-site
supervisor. Please make the on-site team aware of your needs as soon as
possible, as there may be a short delay while this is organised. Please plan
ahead and leave extra time wherever possible.
