PARTS OF Clarence Esplanade will be closed for 19 days from Monday.

Colas, Portsmouth City Council’s highways contractor, is set to resurface the seafront road from the Hovercraft Terminal to its junction with South Parade.

Work is set to run from Monday until Friday, April 8, taking place between 7.30am and 6pm, Monday to Friday, and may also include some weekend work.

This work will be carried out in two phases, starting on the section from the Hovercraft Terminal to Clarence Esplanade’s junction with Avenue De Caen.

The second phase will be from Avenue De Caen to South Parade.

These parts of the road will be closed during the working hours and parking will be suspended, but business access will still be allowed. Colas has advised that Clarence Parade can be used as a diversion.

Steve Johns, surfacing agent at Colas, said: ‘We’re sorry for inconvenience this may cause. It’s necessary to improve the road’s standard to make the seafront more attractive.’
