More Launceston road closures - UPDATED

UPDATE - Because of representations regarding late night shopping on the 13th, the Church St works will now be taking place from 5th-11th December and the High St works from 3rd-4th December.

I have received notice of three more road closures in Launceston before the end of the year.

1. Closure of High Street from 5th-6th December. (dates now changed, see update above)
This closure is for ducting works connected to the installation of superfast broadband in the town centre.

2. Closure of Church St from 9th-13th December. (dates now changed, see update above)
I have asked that the council make a requirement that all such works be completed and the road fully re-opened by 2pm on Friday 13th at the latest. This is the date of the annual Launceston Late Night Shopping event and any closure or disruption would have a significant effect on one of the biggest trading days for local shops. This closure is for ducting works connected to the installation of superfast broadband in the town centre.

3. Closure of Upper Chapel from 9th-13th December.
This closure will affect the section between the junction with Meadowside and the junction with Chapel Hill and is to repair a leaking water main. Access to both Meadowside and Chapel Hill will be maintained. If you are affected by this closure and want more information, call 0844 3462020
