A SECTION of pavement along St John Street will be closed this month while contractors connect electricity to the Green Man Hotel.
Electricity distribution firm Western Power Distribution will carry out the work, connecting power to the new development of flats, retail units and a bar at the St John Street site from Monday, August 18.
The work involves the installation of around 40 metres of low voltage mains and bosses say it will be completed before the bank holiday weekend.
Area team manager Simon Roper said: “During the work, there will be a pavement closure along the section that we’re working, however we will provide safe, easy access for pedestrians so to minimise any inconvenience.
“Our work should have little impact on local traffic and businesses in the vicinity will be open and accessible to the public.”
