Poole road closed for two weeks while £84k work takes place
11:00am Wednesday 11th December 2013 in News
A POOLE residential road has been closed for two weeks while an estimated £84,000 of work takes place.
Mossley Avenue, Wallisdown, was closed by Borough of Poole between Astbury Avenue and Alder Road on Monday and is due to re-open on December 20.
John Rice, engineering manager, Borough of Poole, said: “We have temporarily closed Mossley Avenue to enable resurfacing works to be carried out safely. These works are part of our planned maintenance programme and are scheduled to be completed on December 13.
“We also decided to replace the traffic calming cushions at the same time to minimise further disruption to local residents and road users.
“The traffic calming cushions are an important road safety feature and the current ones have come to the end of their working life and show signs of structural failure. The new cushions, which are pairs of bolted down modular speed bumps, will be installed the week commencing December 16.
“We would like to thank local residents and road users for their patience while these improvement works are carried out.”
The road has to be closed to traffic as it is not wide enough to allow a lane closure with temporary signals.
