West End Project Update – Gower Street Resurfacing

Between the 25th November and 13th December Gower Street will be resurfaced as part of the West End Project. The work will be done in sections to take up the existing road surface and lay a new surface with raised areas, designed to slow traffic down.

Noise and access

One of the noisest parts of this work involves digging to prepare the road for resurfacing. There will also have large vehicles moving around the area to prepare and lay the new road surface.


Each section will take 9 days to resurface. During this time road closures will be put in place to side streets and a section of Gower Street. Pedestrian diversions will be in place and there will be closures to pedestrian crossings.

During this time there will be no vehicle access 24 hours a day to the closed section of Gower Street.

For more detail on each section see our website for the programme. This timetable is subject to change and will be updated as the work continues.


If you have any concerns during the works you can contact the West End Project enquiry line 24 hours a day on 0845 3308 743.
