Ryde road set for upgrade

Posted on: June 22, 2019 at 5:36 am

One of the main roads in and out of Ryde is to be resurfaced shortly by Island Roads.

Easthill Road will be resurfaced between the Strand and Appley Road in a scheme scheduled to begin on 3 April and last six nights.

The work will be undertaken overnight Monday-Friday during the hours of 7.30pm and 6am in order to minimise inconvenience to road users.

The resurfacing follows a period of preparatory work which has involved extensive laying of new kerbstones.

During work there will be a road closure and a signed diversion in place but pedestrian access will be maintained.  Residents should already have received letters explaining how the work will affect them.

“This is a busy road serving the seafront area of the town so we are working overnight to reduce disruption,” said project manager Derek Benfield. “As with all our schemes we would like to thank residents and road users in advance for their co-operation.”

Island Roads will shortly be announcing details of a scheme to resurface further sections of Ryde Esplanade.
