  • Bury Council

    Bury Council will be resurfacing Bury Bolton Street and Market Street for an approximately five week period beginning on 11 March 2019.

    The work will be programmed to be undertaken in the evenings (Sunday to Thursdays) with traffic being managed using temporary one-way working and short term road closures. Temporary diversion routes will be signed accordingly.

    As the works progress it will be necessary to restrict access to/from some of the adjoining side streets that connect with Bolton Street for short periods of time. This is to ensure the safety of members of the public and the contractors staff.

    Unfortunately, when undertaking any scheme of this nature, some disruption is unavoidable; nevertheless, Bury Council will endeavour to reduce this disruption as much as possible.

    For more information visit www.burygov.co.uk, call 0161 253 5353 or email engcon@bury.gov.uk
