– Advance Notice of Highway resurfacing – High Street between Star Street and Swanmore Road.


Island Roads have informed us that they will be undertaking carriageway upgrades to the High Street, between Star Street and Swanmore Road.  Please see below for details


Location of works: High Street, Ryde between Star Street and Swanmore Road

Anticipated duration of works: Start date: Wednesday 15th May 2019

Duration: 2 Nights (Mon – Fri), over two phases.

Traffic Restrictions
During the works, we will be using heavy machinery/equipment and materials that could damage your vehicle, making it unsuitable for vehicles to access the works area. The road will therefore be closed whilst these works are taking place and vehicle access will not be permitted, with the exception of emergency vehicles.

Pedestrian footways will remain open.

Time of works and vehicle access to properties/businesses
Works will take place between the hours of 19:30 and 06:00, although exact start and finish times may vary. The area of work will be coned the night before the works and this indicates the start of the works the following night. When the cones are in place they ask you to kindly park your cars off street in preparation for the works the next night.

Parking /vehicle removal
Island Roads will remove any vehicles that remain on the carriageway within the road closure and relocate them to a safe alternative location nearby.  In these circumstances, you can locate your vehicle by contacting the help desk on 01983 822440. Please note that Island Roads has the authority to remove vehicles in these circumstances from the carriageway and costs may be charged to the registered keeper if a vehicle has to be relocated.
