Carvel Lane.

Part of Cowes town centre is to close for resurfacing for a time next month (June).

The ‘loop’ between Terminus Road, the High Street and Carvel lane is due to be upgraded over two nights – Tuesday 4 and Wednesday 5 June.

Work on the busy section which serves the Red Jet terminal will be undertaken at night between 7.30pm and 6am, during which time the road will be closed.

Island Roads construction manager Keith Gourlay said:

“This is a busy section of road that those who use it will be well aware is in need of an upgrade.

“We hope that by doing the work overnight we will keep disruption to a minimum but I would like to thank road users and businesses in advance for their co-operation and understanding.”

The scheme is part of the Island’s Highway Improvement Programme, which is financed in the main through a grant of £477 million awarded by the Department for Transport.
