Station Road and College Road improvements
The City Council's contractor Galliford Try are now appointed to carry out works along Station Road and College Road (up to Avenue Road) between now and the end of March.
Such works will involve repaving the footway outside the railway station in Winton Square, widening and resurfacing some of the footways in Station Road and College Road, removal of the traffic humps in College Road and resurfacing of the carriageway, introducing a raised table in the carriageway outside Cadman and a new mini traffic island at the University's new vehicular entrance, and introducing more trees along the route.
There will be three sets of works operating at any one time and so given the existing volumes of traffic and pedestrians in the vicinity, are going to experience some inconvenience during this period.
