“These resurfacing works are part of the last phase of works following the opening of Colliery Way in March and we would like to thank local residents and motorists for their patience whilst we have been working on this scheme.
“Pedestrian access will be maintained throughout the closures however there may be times where vehicle access to properties is not possible and so we are asking any local residents with special circumstances including disabled access, health visits, deliveries and collections should contact Steve Whyld from Via East Midlands by calling 0115 804 2158 or by emailing [email protected]
“Traffic marshalls will be in the vicinity of the junctions and the works area throughout the working periods to give advice on access / egress for residents. Please take care during these works and observe all signs and instructions from site personnel to ensure everyone stays safe.”
