THE Strand’s �3m upgrade is on course for completion by mid November say the County Council.
The next stage is the surfacing of Rolle Street- which will be closed on Tuesday causing some traffic disruption.
Work will on the new roundabout and the South end of the Strand which will also take place from Monday.
The last stage will result in the relocation of taxis to a permanent new rank and the implementation of new parking restrictions at the south end of Strand.
Most of the underground work is now completed and the County Council say they are not expecting any major delays.
A spokesman said: “The work will cause local disruption and some delays to traffic, particularly on Tuesday when Rolle Street is closed. Anyone who has deliveries or thinks this may give them problems is asked to contact the site staff who will give help and advice.
“We are not expecting any major delays, but works are monitored weekly to ensure the contractor is on programme.
