Construction of Goat Lane and Turkey Street

Construction works on the bridges over the New River at Goat Lane and Turkey Street are set to begin during the school half-term break from Monday 23 October to Friday 27 October. Residents in the area have been notified of the works by letter.

The works on Goat Lane will involve constructing build-outs on both sides of the footway to create a single-file carriageway with vehicles giving way to each other over the bridge.

The works on Turkey Street will involve removing existing concrete blocks and replacing them with bollards to improve access for people walking and cycling. We will also be laying a new surface to improve the appearance of the bridge.

To enable our contractor to carry out these works in a safe and timely manner, we will be closing Goat Lane/Hoe Lane either side of the bridge and the pedestrian bridge at Turkey Street during this time. We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your cooperation.
