12:02am 17th June 2012

Work to transform Weymouth's Nothe Gardens into a spectator area for the Olympic Sailing events is set to begin next month.

On 16th July work will start on a small central area of the Nothe Gardens. Work to install temporary structures and facilities for the spectator site will continue with a small area of the Gardens closing on 23rd July. During this time, the majority of the Gardens will remain open to the public, as will the Nothe Fort.

On 26th July the remaining part of the spectator site and the Nothe Fort will close and re-open on the morning of 13th August.

Disruption to local residents will be kept to a minimum with access to vehicles restricted to the hours of 7am to 7pm from 16th July to 26th July and from 7am to 10pm from 27th July to 12th August during the Games.

Noise levels will be closely monitored and working practices changed if necessary.

Nearly five thousand spectators will be at the gardens each day during the Olympic events.
