Special traffic measures will be implemented due to works by DIADYADK (Public Water Company) on Sunday, March 19 starting from 07:30 until the completion of the works, and not beyond sunset on the same day, according to a police announcement.

The traffic interruption is due to the restoration of a sewage pipe on Ioulias Andreadi Street (opposite Platiteras).

With responsibility of the project manager, proper and complete signage (warning, regulatory and informative) should be placed at the above mentioned points (a) and (b) in order to inform both drivers and residents of the area regarding the temporary traffic arrangements. Additionally, at the section of Ioulia Andreadi street where the work will take place, if the section on the roadway extends towards the centre of the street and only one lane remains open for use, appropriate signage should be placed and necessary personnel should be deployed to regulate traffic.

The Corfu Traffic Police will monitor the adequacy of the signage and indicate to the responsible staff engineer of the Inter-Municipal Water Supply and Sewerage Enterprise of the Municipalities of Corfu any other necessary measures for informing drivers, in order to avoid traffic accidents.
