WORK is due to begin on March 7 on a project to create a new, safer, Active Travel footway at Crowhill, Haverfordwest.
The Pembrokeshire County Council project on the B4330 Crowhill Road will be carried out by Atkins and is expected to take around seven weeks.
The development will create new footways to link with existing pavements to provide a much safer route for pedestrians.
Local residents and motorists using the B4330 are assured that the contractors are committed to completing the scheme within the shortest possible time to minimise disruption.
While there are likely to be full road closures in place at times, every effort will be made to keep the impact minimal and reduce the need for road closure as long as it is practical and safe.
Access to properties will be maintained at all times.
Cabinet Member for Infrastructure, Cllr Phil Baker, said: “This is an important upgrade of the footways to make the route to and from Haverfordwest much safer to use and encourage more people to leave the car at home and walk into town.
“As with all developments there will inevitably some disruption and for that we apologise in advance but we are committed to minimising the impact wherever possible.
“All neighbouring residents will this week receive a letter providing further information about the project and we would ask for the public’s patience as we carry out this important work.”
The project is part of the Council’s Active Travel work.
Active Travel means walking and cycling (including the use of mobility scooters and electric wheelchairs) for everyday journeys, such as going to work or the shops, or to access services.
