Despite weather and tool theft 'work is on schedule'

Overnight work to finish a new on-road cycle lane should finally be finished today in Gillingham.

Dorset Council say the pavement near Cemetry Road should finally reopen before the final pavement surface will be laid later this month.

They've given an update on the work saying: "Despite some pretty miserable weather and the theft of equipment and tools from site, work in Gillingham is on schedule.

"Night work to remove road lining and set up the temporary road layout for the work went well.

"The narrowing of the pavement between Cemetery Road and Wyke Road, to provide an on-road cycle lane, will be finished by Friday 14 February and the pavement will reopen to pedestrians.

"The final pavement surface layer will be laid later this month when this section of Le Neubourg Way has road patching work carried out and the refuge islands are installed.

"Vegetation has been cleared from Wyke Road down to the Waitrose junction to enable the next phase of works.

"When construction work reaches the Waitrose junction temporary off-peak (9am-4pm) signals will be needed so that ducting can be put across the road. Please look out for signs advising of dates nearer the time.

"On Monday 24 February, temporary lights will be in place on Le Neubourg Way overnight from 9pm to 6am for material testing to be carried out."
