I understand that these works, as with other roadworks, will bring a level of inconvenience to the businesses and road users in this area, however, when completed, it will be aesthetically pleasing and safe for pedestrians,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Transport, Alderman Felicity Purchase.</p><p>Road users are advised that:</p><ul><li><div style="text-align:left;">work areas will be temporarily demarcated to regulate traffic flow</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">vehicles may be parked in the driveways as normal, if and when access is available</div></li><li><div style="text-align:left;">parked vehicles that obstruct the resurfacing operation will be moved or towed away</div></li></ul><p>No congestion is expected in the area, but the City recommends that road users consider making use of alternative routes as far as possible.</p><p>‘I want to ask the residents and business owners to please comply with the contractor’s traffic arrangements by ensuring that their vehicles are not parked in the roadway.
