Drivers using Plumstead Road in Thorpe End will face disruption from August 9 as road resurfacing and tree maintenance is carried out.

Multiple trees along the road have branches which are close to touching overhead cables, so they, along with ivy and deadwood, must be removed.

To ensure safety, work will be shut to traffic from 7am to 5pm (week days only).

Following the removal of the foliage, the road will remain closed for resurfacing, to start on August 23, weather permitting.

This work will require 24-hour road closure for five days, meaning the road is estimated to reopen on August 28. 

Access to private properties and businesses will be maintained and delays will be kept to a minimum.

A diversion route will be put in place and pedestrian access will be maintained.
