Here’s a brief update regarding ongoing activity works around Blossom Street. We hope you find this update helpful but please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
Graffiti on Fleur de Lis Passage
Since the removal of the street art installation earlier this year we have noticed that there has been an increase in the number of instances of graffiti around the Blossom Street area, in particular on Fleur de Lis Passage.
To combat this, we have increased routine patrols around the site looking out for graffiti and anti-social behaviour in particular. We are also now repainting the panels on a bi-weekly basis, but unfortunately these are almost immediately ‘tagged’ as we create a blank canvas.
We will continue to repaint the panelling in the coming weeks to keep them free of graffiti with our patrols and repainting, and are exploring alternative ways to try to reduce this. In the meantime, if you notice any new street art along the passages, or that it is getting worse, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Additional utility trench works
Within the next few of weeks we will be undertaking further utility trenches on roads around the site to establish what utilities are situated under the roads and pavements. These works will be similar to the utility trench works we have undertaken previously along Fleur De Lis Passage and Fleur De Lis Street. The locations of the trenches we will be digging are indicatively shown in the map below.
As with the previous works, we will be restoring each trench to their original condition. Please note that this might involve a temporary road closure on Blossom Street, but we will let you know in advance when this will be and for how long.
161 Commercial Street works
Commencing Tuesday 29th May, site investigation works will commence within 161 Commercial Street. The purpose of these works will be to establish the current condition of the building internals. All works will be undertaken inside the building, but you may notice contractors and materials moving from the yard by the 1927 Building to 161 Commercial Street.
