ANGRY traders say extended roadworks on a street near their stalls are causing profits to plunge.
Some operators on Newcastle’s town market stalls claim to be making as little as £12 per week during the temporary closure of Hassell Street to traffic.
The work, undertaken by Newcastle Borough Council, began on January 13 and is expected to be completed by mid-April.
But it has been delayed by two-and-a-half weeks due to adverse weather conditions.
Trader Michelle Taylor, aged 49, of Hanley, who has worked on a children’s clothing stall since October, said her trade has gone down by at least 50 per cent.
