Following my visit this week to deliver letters regarding the closure of the junction of Derwentwater Road. The junction will be closed from the 8 June 2020 for approximately 18 months. Intially residents of Abbeyfield Close will need to access from Johnson Street until the road is widened, then they will access via Derwentside Water. This will take 2 weeks. Johnson Street residents will need to follow the diversions in place as of Monday.
We also thought it would be great to show our customers what is behind our fencing. Our site team has completed the first section of the tunnel, which can be seen in the attached photographs. The sewerage network has also been adjusted to allow for the next section of tunnel. As mentioned, next week we will also start working at the junction of Derwentwater Road with Johnson Street, where we will be widening the road and making adjustments to the existing shaft over the following months.
In other areas, we are starting works on the riverside at The Staithes to construct a new asset on the riverwall. Our team will also be carrying out some pathway work on the turning circle on Abbeyfield Close.
As always, if anyone would like to discuss our works further please contact us direct.
Have a lovely week.
