Neston Public Realm Improvements 2014 - Photo Diary Part 6

Published: 28th March 2014 10:13

The public realm improvement works in Neston town centre are now over half way to completion.

Having had to wait a while for the specially ordered materials such as York stone slabs and granite blocks to arrive, the contractors are now stepping up a gear to ensure the project completion comes in on time.

This week they have been working at night as well as in the daytime, to minimise disruption to businesses and pedestrians while pavements are replaced outside shop entrances.

Assuming all continues to go to plan, the work will be completed on Thursday April 17.  While the road resurfacing in the centre is carried out, it will require a total road closure from Sunday April 13 until the Thursday. Cheshire West and Chester Council officers and the contractors have pledged to liaise with businesses on deliveries and traffic diversion signage will be installed to help drivers get from a to b.  It coincides with the second week of the school Easter holidays which should at least mean there is a bit less traffic on the roads at peak times.

Parking

While the contractors compound is taking up space on Chester Road Car Park, Sainsbury's have waived the 3 hour limit on the GROUND FLOOR  of the multi-storey car park (limit still applies on the upper two floors).  You can also park long-term at the Malt Shovel, thanks to the kind offer from Andy Parry.  Cheshire West have also negotiated with the British Legion for further long term parking, particularly while the main resurfacing work takes place in the Easter holidays as it will assist some people who wish to (or can) park just outside the scope of the road closure and walk into the village.

Windows

The contractors have been cleaning business premises windows that have been badly affected by hosing of pavements etc.  However, this has only been done when the business manager or owner has requested it.  If you are an affected business and wish to have your windows cleaned, please speak to the contractors on site or contact Neston & District Chamber of Trade by email.

Here are this week's photos, again courtesy of Rob Clive:

Work has continued this week on the Upper High Street pavement, with York stone slabs and replacement kerb stones being cut to fit.
