Upgrade planned for sports ground surface at Lagan Road and the intersection of Main and Dewsbury Streets, which will include pedestrian crosswalks, is set to begin in 2017, and is expected to be complete by 2021.
According to the announcement, the project will have been in the pipeline for nearly 10 years, starting with the design for a new plaza at the corner of Main and Dewsbury Street.
In 2012, the City Council granted planning permission to remove parking and reduce its size to allow the construction of new surface parking. The City later approved the construction of two smaller parking lots, to be located on the opposite side of the street from the Lagan Road parking deck (one in each direction).
The design for the new pedestrian plaza has recently received approval by the Planning Department to begin construction. At first the parking deck will be used to store the parking garage and the two smaller parking lots will be used for loading and unloading. The project will be located at a location where the two parking lots connect together for traffic flow in and out of the Lagan Street Parking Deck. The project will be comprised of four segments, starting at the parking deck, running up Main Street and over Dewsbury Street. The plans are still in development, so preliminary details to determine size and overall layout have not been released at this time.
The project will include:
A new pedestrian plaza with seating for 2,300 (at least 2,200 on the second phase),
A바카라 landscaped sidewalk running all along Main Street,
Additional loading areas at Dewsbury and Lagan streets, and
More bike lanes and the creation of a bike-only lane for local businesses.
The pedestrian plaza is expected to be completed in 2018, although that date will depend upon whether construction is successful. The landscaped sidewalk along Main Street will be completed by October 2021, and will include seating for 4,500 (that includes 1,000 seated and 800 standing).
The plan for the bike lane includes the addition of a green space on Lagan Street between Dewsbury and Doyles streets to increase bike traffic flow on Doyles and create addit바카라ional space to park bicycles when there is no bike lane on the street.
To accommodate bicycles, the Lagan Street Parking Deck will be transformed from a curbside parking lot to an on-street parking deck. Access to the deck will be prov바카라사이트ided from the Main Street side of the garage (see Figure 1). The parking deck will be covered by
