The contractor expects to have the traffic signals work completed by Monday 31st August - it may be sooner. That is the crossings at St Leonard's Street, Clerk Street and Hope Park Crescent at the Meadows.
But there is also a bit of carriageway resurfacing work to be done at Clerk Street and Hope Park Crescent. This was to be done earlier but was held back after the embargo on road works during the Festival period came into operation.
There has been some concern from cyclists about the bumpiness of the new cycleway surfaces in St Leonard's Street and Buccleuch Street. Not good.
I am told the surfaces have been checked and they conform to footway standards - which I can believe, but many cyclists will just switch to the carriageway which is smoother. However, I know there are further discussions going on within the Council and with Sustrans (who part funded the route) on whether another skim surface should be put on it or not.
