Stop-and-go to accommodate demolition works in Clifton<p>The work will take place between 08:00 and 17:00 on weekdays and on Saturdays.</p><p>A section of approximately 50m of the southbound lane from 11 to 13 Victoria Road will be closed to traffic during this time.</p><p>The purpose of the work is to safely demolish and remove the disused steel pipe and concrete encasement which has become a safety hazard due to erosion of the surrounding weathered granite material.</p><p>The work also includes the relocation of existing services – two 110mm diameter uPVC pipes, one carrying sewerage and one carrying stormwater from the properties above, as well as a single 25mm water supply pipe.</p><p>No full road closures are anticipated and traffic will be accommodated by means of a contraflow system. Daytime lane closures will be in place whereby both the north and southbound traffic will be accommodated on the northbound lane. </p><p>Traffic accommodation will be implemented and managed by the appointed contractor.</p><p style="text-align:left;">The existing steel pipe that requires demolition runs vertically from the road level and up a steep embankment and is encased in concrete. </p><p style="text-align:left;">'The safety of our residents is key. Although no physical work will be performed on the actual road surface, we will have a lane closure with a stop-and-go system in place to ensure the safety of all road users along this narrow curved road,' said the City's Mayoral Committee Member for Urban Mobility, Councillor Rob Quintas.</p><p style="text-align:left;">'I appeal to residents to please avoid the area during the demolition period to avoid unnecessary disappointment and delays,' said Councillor Quintas.</p><p style="text-align:left;"> </p><p><strong>End</strong></p><p><br></p>2022-09-29T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#d81388b5-b08f-489f-934c-4938ca5f2236;L0|#0d81388b5-b08f-489f-934c-4938ca5f2236|Clifton;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#3e84e2ed-3e2d-44ae-a5b6-af54ef207755;L0|#03e84e2ed-3e2d-44ae-a5b6-af54ef207755|maintenance10
