Highway Maintenance Works

Please note that road works will take place on Sunday. Please see notice below.

Road works will take place on Pemberton Road at its junction with Winstanley Road and Wigan Road at its junction with Ashton Road, a section of Ashton Road adjacent to Wigan Road will also be included.

It is the Council’s intention to carry out carriageway resurfacing works at the above location.
The carriageway resurfacing works will commence on Sunday 11 January 2015 and with the
exception of any unforeseen circumstances the work should take 1 day to complete.

Due to safety reasons it is considered impractical to attempt to carry out these works and still maintain a safe flow of vehicular traffic. It is for this reason that a road closure of both junctions incorporating a diversion route has to be implemented during the contractor’s presence on site.
The resurfacing work on Ashton Road adjacent to Wigan Road will be carried out under two way traffic signal control

Vehicular access may be available for occupiers of premises within the closed section of highway during the working period, but this cannot be guaranteed at any one time and long delays may be experienced. It may also not be possible to gain access to your property from the same direction each time and an alternative route may need to be found. Outside the working period access will be available. Emergency access will be available at all times.

Please can I ask the residents to park off the highway during the works. This will mean that the work will be finished as quickly as possible.

I realise that these works will cause inconvenience in some way or other to yourselves, your visitors, neighbours and delivery vehicles etc, and I can only apologise and ask that with your co-operation these works can be carried out quickly with the minimum of delay.

Should you have any particular problems regarding the works please do not hesitate to contact me on 01942-404364 or the contractor’s technical supervisor on site Mr Abbott.

Yours faithfully
