Tapton Hill Streets Ahead work hit by delays

Streets Ahead improvements have been delayed in Tapton Hill

Streets Ahead improvements have been delayed in Tapton Hill

Crosspool residents living on Tapton Hill  are receiving notifications from Streets Ahead notifying them of delays to the improvements and new dates for when work will take place.

On Monday 5 August, work commenced a month later than planned on Vernon Terrace, Ryegate Road, Ryegate Crescent and Bosville Road. People living on these streets should have received a letter about this.

Lydgate Lane residents were expecting work to begin at night on 12 and 15 August, but this has been delayed and will instead take place Monday 19 to Friday 23 August 2013 between 7am and 7pm. Cars will be diverted, although access for pedestrians and emergency vehicles will be available at all times.

After a review of road conditions in the area, Cross Lane will now also be resurfaced. Residents will be informed by letter once a date is confirmed.

Underground cabling issues have meant that installation of new street lighting in Tapton Hill will start in November with a projected completion date of January. The heritage lights which are due to be installed in the Broomhill conservation area are on order. Pavements will be resurfaced as street lights are replaced.

    No great surprise that there are some delays given the complexities of the project. From what I’ve seen to date it’s looking pretty good. Worries me a little that footpaths have already been done without the lighting columns having been replaced (on Tapton Hill Road at least) but we’ll see how they get over that one. Also a bit disappointing to see patch repairs already on Tapton Crescent Road, but on the whole, a big improvement.

    No great surprise that work won’t be done on original dates given considering the time spent by the men chatting and no evidence of any significant work being done if Headland Rd is anything to go by
