posted 28 Mar 2013, 08:30 by Rochdale TC

Following the works this month to install poles/columns which will support the overhead cables, this is to inform you of further overnight works to install the cables. This will involve the temporary closure of a section of Drake Street, between Water Street and Oldham Road.

Installation of the overhead line equipment on Drake Street, between Oldham Road and Water Street, will require this section of Drake Street to be closed overnight to all traffic for approximately 2 weeks, starting on Tuesday 2nd April. The restriction of access for vehicles will be in place between 9pm and 6am.

For the majority of these works, pedestrian access will be unaffected, however at times some pedestrian crossing points across the street will be restricted for safety reasons.  Staff will be in place to ensure that pedestrians can safely access Drake Street.

Traffic diversion signage will be in place throughout these overnight closures.
