Newport High Street set for upgrade

Island Roads is planning to resurface the lower section of Newport High Street in a scheme starting early next month.

The work to improve the road between St James Street and Coppins Bridge will be undertaken at night – between the hours of 7.30 pm and 6am – to minimise disruption. The road will be closed during work periods with a diversion in place, but will reopen during the day. Pedestrian access will be maintained where it is safe to do so, and there will be no work at the weekends, to reduce the impact on local business trade.

The work is currently scheduled to last five weekday nights between October 2 and October 6. However, it should be noted that the programme may be subject to change due to external factors out of our control. Residents and businesses most affected by the work have received letters explaining more about the scheme and how they will be affected. Updates will be issued should the programme change.

“Given the busy nature of the High Street, we are particularly keen to give residents and businesses advance notice of this work.” said Island Roads’ Construction Manager Keith Gourlay.

“Following on from our work to upgrade Coppins Bridge, South Street, East Street, as well as Medina Way and St George’s Way, we hope businesses and residents agree that under the Highways PFI there has been a significant improvement on the roads that serve the county town. This work will, of course, continue as the PFI progresses.”

Newport Living History – display on 7th October

We would love for you to share your memories of Newport as part of an exciting new project being developed by Newport Parish Council.
 
The big question is:  What makes the town unique for You?
 
Please join us on 7th October, 10am -12pm at the Lord Louis Library.  We are seeking your memories and those of your parents and grandparents.  Perhaps you have photos in your family albums you’d like to share?  Or a Newport artefact sat in the attic – an enamel advertising sign, Mew Langton beer bottle, old postcards?  If so, please bring them along. 
 
We’re particularly keen to hear about street communities such as those in Orchard Street, Union Street and Chapel Street.
 
Drop in and take part in celebrating Newport’s heritage!
 
Or email Kelly at kellywethericknpc@gmail.com with your memories/anecdotes/photos.
