Sharnbrook Road, Riseley, and Bourne End Lane, Bletsoe – Temporary Road Closure

I have a request for temporary road closures at the above locations for carriageway resurfacing work. Details are listed in the schedule below and having assessed the application I am satisfied the request is justified.

The alternative routes for diverted traffic are as shown below and will be signed accordingly. The restrictions are to be in operation only when the necessary signs are erected on site. The Legal Order will be made to cover a four month period; however, it is anticipated that the closures will be in operation between 8.00am and 6.00pm on 7 weekdays from Tuesday 6th September 2016 to Wednesday 14th September 2016 – Specific dates will be advertised locally closer to the time.

Yours faithfully,

Jason Holdsworth.

Highways Technician (Temporary Traffic Management).
