The streets in question will be blocked off, one by one, as the project progresses; a 3.5-metre wide vehicle passage will be guaranteed at all times for local residents and emergency services.

Vehicular access to private properties will be maintained as long as physically possible. Pedestrian access and access for emergency services will be guaranteed throughout the duration of the works.
