Overnight work will be carried out to resurface pavements in Queen Street in Newton Abbot next month (March).

The scheme, which is due to get underway on Monday 4 March, will be carried out on weekday evenings between 6pm and midnight. The footpaths will be open as usual during the day.

The work will start at the western end of Queen Street, and it is expected to take three weeks to complete.

The sections being resurfaced are:

• East side of Courtenay Street from Victoria Place to junction with Queen Street.

• North side of Queen Street from Courtenay Street to junction with Albany Street.

    I don’t wish to be negative and am happy, as a Newton Abbot resident, that this work is being done. I just hope that the resurfacing is a lot better than the pavements going up past Kings Church. The work that was done there is really shoddy. I hope that works like this is inspected before payments are made.
