  • Works are scheduled to commence on Monday 20th June 2022 for a duration of 5 working days on Candleriggs and Albion Street.

A traffic management system with road closures and reduced road widths will be in operation during the above dates. This is to ensure the safety of the public and site operatives. All businesses that require deliveries and local residents private parking within Albion Street will be allowed to gain access during these works.
