Ashey Road Closure

As many of you are now no doubt aware, Ashey Road is closed for works. This is for works by Southern Water, not Island Roads.

Southern Water made a presentation to Ryde Town Council regarding the works. The PowerPoint presentation is attached for your information, but two key slides will answer most of peoples questions regarding times and dates.

High Street works update – Postponed due to adverse weather

An update has been sent from Island Roads regarding the High Street surfacing works, see below.

Unfortunately, due to today’s adverse weather conditions, tonight’s resurfacing works have been postponed.  The road will, however, be subject to a road closure tonight, to enable other remedial works to be carried out.   The resurfacing will be completed tomorrow night Tuesday 12th September, weather conditions permitting.  I will keep you updated in this regard.

Our Traffic Management crew have confirmed to me that they will update the TM boards today, so that residents are made aware.

We apologise for the inconvenience this has caused, and thank you for your continued patience.

Letter of Apology

Carriageway Resurfacing Works in High Street, Brading

Dear Councillor Tyndall, Councillor Murwill & Brading Town Council

We would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused by our work to resurface Brading High Street which began last night (Sept 7).  As you know this start date was a day earlier than that communicated to residents via letter and the information boards that have been placed on site.

As I hope you will appreciate, our work programme is subject to change due to numerous factors but the change affecting the Brading scheme should have been relayed to residents and business. Human error meant this communication did not occur and, once again, we sincerely apologise for this oversight.

In addition, it appears residents of Quay Lane were not informed of the works and we will be writing to them apologising for this.

We are taking steps to ensure that these issues do not happen in the future.

This resurfacing project is a three-night scheme that will be completed, weather permitting, on the nights of September 8 and 11.

Many thanks for your understanding.

Yours faithfully,

Island Roads

Brading High Street road improvements planned

Brading High Street is to be improved in an Island Roads resurfacing scheme next month.

The work scheduled to last between September 8 and September 13 will be undertaken at night between the hours of 7.30pm and 6am in order to reduce disruption.  The section of the High Street between New Road and Coach Lane will be upgraded in the scheme.

So the project can be carried out as quickly and as safely as possible, a road closure will be put in place during the work and traffic diverted via Carpenters Road, Station Road, Embankment Road, Kings Road, Forelands Road, Steyne Road, Sandown Road and Marshcombe Shute. Work will not be undertaken during the weekend.

Keith Gourlay, Island Roads construction manager said: “By carrying out the work overnight and outside of the main school holiday period we hope to keep disruption to a minimum.

“Nevertheless it is impossible to undertake such work in the heart of the town on what is also a through road without causing some inconvenience and we would like to thank residents and business in advance for their understanding.

“We hope that any short-term localised disruption will be offset by the long-term benefits of having this busy road significantly improved by this work.”
