Lord Street to temporarily close overnight for maintenance
Lord Street, Southport will undergo essential carriageway maintenance works from June 11, which will last for approximately five days.
Sefton Council’s Highways team will be issuing letters to residents and businesses on Lord Street, to let them know about the upcoming carriageway resurfacing project.
Work is due to commence on Monday June 11 and will take approximately five working days to complete.
The works will take place on isolated areas of the carriageway between Duke Street and Manchester Road.
Cllr John Fairclough, Cabinet Member for Locality Services, said:”Sefton is a borough on the move and making sure Lord Street’s carriageway is maintained is a key priority for us.”
“Due to the location of the site and the amount of surrounding properties and businesses, we are intending to carry out the works of an evening after 6.30pm to minimise inconvenience and disruption as much as possible.”
It is planned for the night works to end at midnight, followed by a site safety procedure which will be completed on each occasion by 1am.
Pedestrian access to shops and amenities will be available at all times, as well as access for emergency vehicles.
Diversions will be in place via Duke Street, Victoria Way, Esplanade, Seabank Road and vice versa.
Works nearing Eastbank Street and Nevill Street junctions will be signposted accordingly.
