Roadworks scheduled for Lour Road, Forfar

Published on Monday 10 October 2022

Repair works at and around Lour Road in Forfar are due to begin next week and follow significant flooding in the town centre that took place during heavy rainfall in September.

Works to repair the damaged culvert will be carried out between the junctions of Mount Feredith and Kirkriggs, will start on Monday 17 October and should take approximately ten working days. The road will be closed during this time and will be re-surfaced before re-opening.

Then works to install additional drainage between Beech Hill Court and the track leading to Balmashanner at the top of Lour Road will start from Monday 31 October and, again, is scheduled to take ten working days.

The road will be closed, with the following diversions in place until the work is completed –

A932 St James Road – A932 Academy Street – B9128 South Street – C57 Kingston Road - Lour Road

Lour Road - C57 Kingston Road – B9128 South Street– A932 Academy Street – A932 St James Road

Vehicle access to properties will be limited during working hours. Anyone requiring access/exit should speak to the Roads Staff on site and they will assist.

The contractor will try to allow access to driveways overnight, where safe to do so and will try to maintain access at weekends.

Pedestrian access will be available to all properties and supported by barriers where work is ongoing. Anyone requiring access/exit from property while work is ongoing should seek assistance from staff working on site.

Bin collections will continue as normal.

Anyone living or working in the area who has, or knows someone who has, any special needs, particularly with regards to access or mobility should contact Angus Council so suitable arrangements can be made.

Thank you in advance for your patience and co-operation. Anyone who requires further information can email or contact Roads Asset Management via email to ACCESSLine or by phone on 03452 777 778.
