Surface repairs are to be carried out on Priory Avenue and Mountway Road this month.
Inspections identified a need for extensive carriageway patching. This requires road closures while the work is carried out.

  • Priory Avenue 6 – 10 November – evening works 6pm to 11.30pm
  • Mountway Road 27 – 30 November – daytime 7.30 – 6.00pm

Diversions will be in place, and our workforce will ensure disruption is kept to a minimum, but we suggest if you use these roads at these times, you please plan to give yourselves more time for your journey(s).

Buses that usually use Mountway Road, including those to and from the Silk Mills Park and Ride, will follow the diversion route, and this will add a few minutes to journey times.

We appreciate the vast majority of the public are considerate and respectful to contractors and we’re grateful for everyone’s patience and understanding. Please remember our team is there to carry out essential work to these roads.

If you spot a problem on the road you can report it quickly and easily on Report a problem on the road page.
