Resurfacing works to commence on Felixstowe promenade

Posted by Town Hall Staff 15 April 2019

Suffolk Highways have advised that resurfacing works  to the promenade will commence on Tuesday the 23rd April 2019. The entire area of the promenade will be closed off at this time. A pedestrian walkway in the carriageway to allow safe passage past the works will be temporarily installed.  The work will be carried out in 2 halves. Work will start from 07-30 to approx 17-00 each day. Please see map here  Felixstowe Prom – Site Extent

Part one – Southern end 

Work will start on the southern most half from the ice cream kiosk heading northwards. It is planned that the prom will be planed out both sides of the southern section on Tuesday and complete the slurry sealing by end of play on Friday 26th April 2019.  All Traffic Management will be lifted over the weekend and be reinstalled on Monday  29th April to carry out part 2.

Part 2 – Northern end 

It is planned that the prom will again be planed out both sides on Monday 29th April and the slurry sealing completed by close of play on Thursday 2nd May.  There will be not work on site for Friday 3rd  or Monday 6th either side of the bank holiday weekend.

If  problems / delays accrue then work will re start in the northern section after the Bank Holiday weekend on Tuesday  7th May.  No Traffic Management will be left in situ over any of the weekends

A barrier will be placed over any trip hazards when site is vacated at the end of the day whilst works are ongoing.(ie overnight when crew due back the following morning).

No parking cones will be installed the night before work starts on both sections. A temporary walkway will be installed to ensure safe passage around the works at all times.

There will be Traffic Management operatives on site to both protect the actual working areas and to manage pedestrian/beach hut owners requiring access. 

Please be aware that there may be times when there is  work directly in front of static beach huts and access will not be allowed until machinery has moved on and it is safe to do so.

Although work is to be carried out in 2 sections it is necessary, at least over the first two days to close off this entire section of the promenade  to allow site vehicles and machinery room to manoeuvre safely.
