Queen Margaret's School Roadway Resurfacing Work

published on 22nd May 2015, 22:34

The following has been received from Queen Margaret's School:

As many residents who use it to walk to Temple will know, the main drive at Queen Margaret's continues to deteriorate and our endless patching is no longer keeping pace with the development of pot-holes. We have now entered into a contract for the resurfacing of the drive from a point near the turning to Wheldrake Lodge (at the Skipwith Road end of the drive) up to the car park in front of the School.

The plan is that the work will be done over the School half term, starting on 25 May and will take the greater part of that week.. While the work is being carried out it will not be possible for pedestrians to use the School drive or its verges safely.

To enable villagers to get to the Temple walk safely we will open the ornamental Park Gates onto Main Street between 06:00 and 20:00 each day as a temporary measure it will then be possible to walk along the roadway through the centre of the School to get to the Temple Walk.

We plan to put a temporary sign at the village entrance to Gashouse Wood explaining the situation. A similar temporary sign will go on the Gates or near them.
