The busy route at the bottom of the town will see temporary traffic lights put in place from Monday 17th February. The works are expected to last until Sunday 23rd February.
Three-way traffic lights will be in operation on a 24/7 basis and will be manually controlled during site working and peak hours from Monday to Sunday.
The work will begin at the on the R250/ Convent Road junction (at Tin Tai) after morning peak hour traffic on Monday. Normal working hours from 07.30 to 18.30 will be observed.
