Cowleaze Crescent – Proposed Works

Cowleaze Crescent – Proposed Works

Communication from SBC to local residents

Dear Sir / Madam,

As a representative for Swindon Borough Council, I write to inform you of resurfacing works programmed along Cowleaze Crescent. The site extents can be viewed on the document attached.

The purpose of the scheme is to replace the deteriorating surface of the road in order to increase the life span of the carriageway and to provide a safer and better running surface for road users.

These works involve resurfacing of the carriageway, installation of new road markings and the adjustment of surface ironwork.

The works will commence on Thursday 25th November 2021 for 7 days between the hours of 08:00 and 18:00, however, on occasions they may over run due to uncontrollable circumstances such as plant breakdowns, if weather conditions are unfavourable, or occasionally we discover the need for additional repairs once the work has started.

There will be advance information signs erected on site giving confirmed start dates.

Due to the nature of the works and the local environment, the works will be carried utilising a road closure, to ensure that adequate health & safety is maintained for the Contractor & local residents.

The Contractor will maintain pedestrian access for the duration; however due to the nature of the works, disruption is inevitable and vehicular access may be restricted. It is essential that the road remains un-trafficked until the new material has set, as early trafficking could lead to premature failure. Dedicated traffic management operatives at the extent of the works will monitor access and give motorists assistance.

I would like to take this opportunity to apologise for any inconvenience these works will cause, but trust you will appreciate the necessity for these essential works to maintain Swindon’s highway network.

Should you require any further information in advance of the works please do not hesitate to contact my colleague Daniel Ward on dward@swindon.gov.uk. If you wish to discuss the works whilst they are in operation, please speak to a member of the workforce who will direct you to the appropriate person.
