Work to repair poor road surfacing in Priory Road will begin next week.
The improvement works will be carried out in two phases over the summer holiday period to ensure there is minimum disruption to residents and motorists.
However this work is vital to ensure the poor surfacing between Hotham Road South and Country Road South can be repaired.
As part of the traffic management, access for motorists will be maintained where possible throughout the phased works, however a diversion route will also be in place and delays should be expected.
Bus services will also be diverted for the duration of the works.
Councillor Dean Kirk, portfolio holder for transportation, roads and highways, said: “Many schools will be breaking up for their summer holidays this week, and we know that this means traffic will be lighter on the roads.
“We understand that roadworks can be frustrating for motorists, however these works are essential if we are to improve the city’s infrastructure for better and safer journeys in the future. We apologise for any inconvenience to drivers in the meantime.
“A letter drop has been issued to residents and businesses in the area, giving them the opportunity to inform the team of any special requirements so the repair work can be accommodated accordingly.
“We are grateful to residents of Priory Road and, while we understand the inconvenience, their cooperation will help to ensure that the work is completed without delay and that these essential works are completed as quickly as possible.”
As part of this work, the highway drainage system will also be investigated and replaced where necessary. An investigation will also be carried out into the condition of the concrete substructure which supports the road.
The work will begin on Monday 2 August for up to eight weeks.
