Works update on Constitution Street

There will be further works between Queen Charlotte Street (QCS) and Bernard / Baltic Junction on Constitution Street from week commencing 16 May 2022.

The installation of the seven Overhead Line Equipment poles (OLE) will commence from next week followed by the first fit out of the tram stop from 30th May 2022.  

The programme of works is as follows:

  • Localised work sites will be established and will involve slabs being lifted to expose the base of the OLE.
  • OLE poles will be delivered to site week commencing 23 May 2022 with installation taking place that same week. During installation there will be no parking on Constitution Street between QCS and Bernard / Baltic Street junction.  The project’s Temporary Traffic Regulation Order will be implemented during these works to allow enforcement.
  • From week commencing 30 May 2022 the slabs will be reinstated around the OLE poles and barriers will be removed.

The tram stop works will be fenced off with crowd barriers (not heras fencing) to allow the first stage of fit out.

These works are expected to take approximately 1 – 2 weeks from the date that the crowd barriers are installed and the barriers will then be removed. There will be a requirement to carry out a second phase of tram stop fit out works at a later date, which will include the installation of the tram stop furniture. Details of this will be communicated ahead of works starting.
