In yesterday’s post I wrote that the road works happening on North & South Cross Streets that cross the high street, and are part of the pedestrian area. I said that I would try and find out what is going on. I spoke to the workers today.
They confirmed that this was related to the construction worker associated with the new bus station. The workers had been digging trenches along each street looking for services (gas, water, electricity etc.) that cross the streets. This is because the two side streets are going to be opened up to traffic during the construction of the new bus station, and the road structure needs to be of a certain standard and the supporting surface needs to have no services in the top one metre.
It appears that North Cross Street is OK, and conversion can start. South Cross Street it appears may have an issue – investigations continue.
This set of roadworks on Mumby Road the the investigations of an ongoing gas leak. The work people were very good. I apologised for interrupting their work and left them to it.
