Just to let you know that Colas, working for UPM Tilhill, will be laying the surface dressing to the paths in Lincoln’s Inn Fields from Tuesday 8th May for 8 days, weather permitting. They usually work Monday to Friday & not weekends or bank holidays. However, they might need to work on a Saturday & later than their normal working hours 8.00am to 5.00pm in order to avoid rain/catch up. They will let us know about this 24 hours in advance.
Hopefully the works should be complete by Friday 18th May.
The park will remain open, but local diversions will take place within the park while the works are undertaken.
The contractor will be having materials delivered to site & stored in a fenced off area on Friday 4th May.
The attached plan shows the phasing of the surface dressing works for the next 8 days – weather permitting.
The blue area will be closed off first, yellow second then orange. The red bit will be closed throughout. For those with an interest in surfacing the material Fibredec being used helps to combat cracking. There’s a video and a brochure – my understanding is that the finish will look ‘gravelly’ as in the picture above from the brochure. Will be good to get this done before summer gets properly under way.
