Work is under way to reconstruct the highway through Higher Foxdale.
The initial phase of the scheme involves the widening and re-profiling of Mines Road junction, including the construction of a new retaining wall.
A section of the main road is also being excavated to a depth of more than two metres in order to install a new large diameter storm water drain.
These photographs – taken today (Thursday 27 October) – show the work in progress and clearly demonstrate why a full road closure is required.
Access to properties and businesses is being maintained.
Additional information, including site maps, road closures and diversion routes, is available on the Current and Recent Projects section of the Department of Infrastructure website.
