Neston Public Realm Improvements 2014 - Photo Diary Part 7

Published: 4th April 2014 10:01

Continuing our coverage of the public realm improvements ongoing in Neston town centre.

The pace has picked up considerably this week, with the pavement from the Town Hall down to the Brown Horse all but finished.  Pavement work has now progressed around the corner into Brook Street.

Meanwhile, the granite sett on one side of Parkgate Road has been completed and work commenced on the opposite carriageway.  Pavement replacement work has also commence on lower High Street.

Some late evening work has continued this week in order to minimise disruption for pedestrians and access to business premises and also to keep to schedule.

The town centre is still under 4-way traffic management as work is being carried out on all four 'arms' of the Cross.  At time of writing, the aim is still to finish by April 17, with the last piece of work being to resurface the roads in the middle, which will require a complete road closure from Sunday April 13 until Thursday April 17.

Parking

The ground floor (lowest) level of Sainsbury's car park is unrestricted whilst the works are ongoing.  You can also park long-term at The Malt Shovel and the British Legion, again while works are in progress.

Here are this week's photos, mainly courtesy of Rob Clive, but with some extras in the Lighter Side this week from Bernard Rose.

The pavement from the Town Hall down to the Brown Horse is pretty much completed now and work began on the pavement going into Brook Street.

And finally, as it was April Fool's Day on Tuesday...from Bernard: Outrageous!  Still, at least you can get a decent signal in the centre of town now:

Whilst driving past the works today I noticed an elderly lady had obviously been confused by the "pedestrian signs" and she was walking into oncoming traffic. One of the workmen immediately came out from behind the barriers to help her. Well done to that young man.
