Update 18.09.20 - Gas Pipe Replacement Works
The work on Kite Hill has taken a little longer than anticipated, so the schedule had to be adjusted.
Work on the High Street between Burycroft / Horpit junction to Rotten Row will now begin with lights close to the allotments on Wednesday 23rd September. The lights will move to the Horpit Cross-roads then moving along the High St to Rotten Row over 4 weeks.
The road will be open, access to properties and businesses will be maintained, but the aim is to reduce speeds for the safety of the workforce.
Properties directly affected should have received a letter and a visit from Wales & West Utilities. If you have any queries please contact their customer service on 0800 912 2999.
From 26th October, a road closure order will be in place for the High Street from Rotten Row to Callas Hill (see SBC Highways notice below).
This designates a very circuitous diversion, but local residents will still be access via more local routes, i.e. Kite Hill & Rotten Row. As far as possible access will be maintained to the pubs in the High Street.
