Recently we have sent out a construction letter informing residents near Northcote Road of works starting soon, to read a copy please click here.

 

Updated on 01.11.16

Work to install road closures on each of the bridges in Pretoria Avenue, Stoneydown Avenue, Ritchings Avenue and Suffolk Park Road began on Saturday 22 October and will take two weeks to complete.

These road closures will be installed to stop any motorised vehicles (of any weight) using the bridges so that the area is as safe as possible, while ensuring that the residential roads see less congestion, noise and pollution. Each of these roads will still be accessible for drivers, the emergency services and key services like refuse collections.
