Grove Park improvement works

We are currently doing works to improve the roads and pavements in Grove Park, which will cause traffic delays while the works are taking place.

What works are happening

The construction work will improve both the carriageways and footways. It will include:

  • installing new kerbs and paving

  • carriageway surfacing

  • upgrading and improving the traffic signals

  • improvements to drainage

  • planting new trees following further ground investigations

  • installing new street furniture.
