Drainage improvement works on Greenwood Street in Altrincham have been brought forward in order to minimise disruption to businesses.
Business owners have received a letter informing them of the remedial works, which will begin tomorrow and last until Wednesday December 2nd, the day the current lockdown is due to end.
The letter, from Alined Construction which is carrying out the work on behalf of Bowmer & Kirkland, details the drainage improvements and manholo work at the junction of Greenwood Street and Pott Street.
Cllr James Wright, Trafford Council’s Executive Member for Housing and Regeneration, said: “This is a great example of how we can work together to provide the best possible outcomes.
“We know how much Covid has affected businesses owners and we have looked to help out where we can, such as our Discretionary Businesses Grant Scheme.
“By scheduling the works now, there will be far less disruption to the shops and businesses in Greenwood Street. That means, if the government allows shops to reopen on 3 December, shoppers and visitors will be able to experience the delights of Altrincham town centre without disruption.”
Alined also plans to keep disruption to a minimum while the work is ongoing, with full pedestrian access to takeaways and essential shops that are still open during lockdown.
