The access road to the sailing club has been re-opened from Thursday 24th November. Please take care and drive slowly through the roadworks.

Original reason for closure:

UNAVOIDABLE ROAD CLOSURE 21st to 24th November  –  The sailing club has been working with Prysmian Group to minimise the disruption to our access road. Recently we had been informed that it would become absolutely necessary to completely close the road under the railway bridge for a couple of days to facilitate the installation of underground ducting etc. They agreed to give us seven days notice ahead of such closure. We have been informed that this closure will be next week as per the following from Prysmian:

“As a follow up to my previous email regards limiting access at the railway bridge on Weighbridge Road, I thank you all for your return correspondence allowing a period of closure to facilitate the final piece of the jigsaw to be completed to allow for the installation of the 600kv DC cables.

The trench under the bridge will be re excavated today (15th November) and enabling works will be completed in this trench this week.

We will be closing the road to vehicular traffic from midday Monday 21st November, and will have the road reopened to vehicular traffic by Thursday 24th November

This will facilitate the excavation across the road and the installation of the ducts, concrete surround, warning tiles and stone backfill

Final tarmac reinstatement will be undertaken once all trenching works are completed.”

Please accept our apologies for this but we hope that all members will understand the need for this short disruption to allow this very important work to proceed.
