Resurfacing of the carriageway between Pilrig Street and Broughton Primary School is scheduled to begin tomorrow. 

If all goes according to plan, work will start at 7.00pm and finish at 6.00am every weekday night until 19 October.

Sections of Broughton Road will be closed to through traffic (except emergency vehicles and pedestrians) during working hours, but will reopen in the mornings.

Phase 1, lasting four nights, will run from Pilrig Street to North Pilrig Heights.

The noisiest part of the job will be breaking up the road surface. This won’t be carried out after 11.00pm. Access to private parking may be disrupted or delayed. On-street parking will be limited.

Broughton Road has been prioritised because of its current condition and because diversions relating to the forthcoming tramworks will prevent any planned resurfacing work from taking place here during construction.

A Council official will be on site from 6.00pm until 11.00pm each night to answer questions and take comments from the public. Alternatively, contact Steven Blacklaw (CEC Transport Design & Delivery) on Tel. 529 3252 or email [].
