North­gate closed for Princess

Halifax Courier - - Yourcourier - By El­iz­a­beth Archer

Roads in Hal­i­fax town cen­tre will be closed this Septem­ber to make way for the coun­cil’s ren­o­va­tion of the his­toric Princess Build­ings. North­gate and Cross­ley Street will be closed to traf­fic and pedes­tri­ans be­tween Septem­ber 6 and Septem­ber 13 to ac­com­mo­date cranes work­ing on the Grade II listed premises.

Danny Mur­ray, Re­gional Di­rec­tor of the ren­o­va­tion’s con­trac­tor, said: “We have worked ex­tremely closely with Calderdale Coun­cil and its of­fi­cers to en­sure that the changes to ex­ist­ing traf­fic routes are be­ing un­der­taken as ef­fi­ciently and ef­fec­tively as pos­si­ble to min­imise im­pact on the area.”

The Princess Build­ing’s ren­o­va­tion is the fi­nal stage of the coun­cil’s of­fice re­de­vel­op­ment and has been un­der way since Jan­uary.

Calderdale Coun­cil’s Leader, Coun­cil­lor Tim Swift, said: “It’s re­ally ex­cit­ing to see the ren­o­va­tions at Princess Build­ings tak­ing shape. The end re­sult will be a per­fect blend of old and new. We are keen to pre­serve the fab­u­lously quirky her­itage fea­tures, but also bring the work­ing en­vi­ron­ment right up to date.”
