Overnight resurfacing work to begin on west side of Valley Gardens

Overnight repair and resurfacing work will begin next month as part of the Valley Gardens project to create new public spaces and improve travel.

Work will begin on Monday 2 March to repair and resurface roads on the west side of the Valley Gardens. Once this has been completed, work will then start on laying a new road surface for the whole of the Valley Gardens 1 & 2 and adding new road markings.

The roads being worked on will be:

  • Marlborough Place
  • Gloucester Place
  • St George's Place
  • York Place
  • St Peter's Place
  • Waterloo Place
  • Richmond Place
  • Grand Parade

Work will take place between 6:30pm and 6am to minimise disruption to traffic flows, bus services and adjacent businesses. Efforts will be made to complete the noisiest part of the resurfacing as early in the evening as possible, however we apologise for any disruption this may cause to residents.

During these works, diversions will be in place around each area under construction, but it will not be possible for any vehicles to enter the working area from adjoining side roads or driveways. Any vehicles left parked on street within the working area will be removed from site.

Pedestrian access will be maintained at all times but will be diverted around the works area.
