GRAHAM Group are ahead of schedule have completed the overnight surfacing works on The Strand on Friday 17 May. Therefore, there will now be no requirement for night-time working to continue this week.

Given that normal occupancy of hotels have now resumed, and after discussion with local Hotel management, GRAHAM have taken noise mitigation steps in resequencing some of the noisiest Loop Cutting (carriageway saw cutting of the new UTC detection system) activities until day shifts over an extended period rather than during full closure night shifts. This will significantly lessen the noise and length of time that GRAHAM will need to complete the overnight Loop Cutting.

1) Tuesday 1 June – Brook Street (Full Closure).
