Good afternoon all, 

I hope you all had a lovely Easter Bank Holiday Weekend!

Just a quick update for you on how things have been going with the reinstatements in the area. 

Last week we carried out the tarmac reinstatements at the bottom of Belford Street along with surfacing works and footpath repairs on Kilburn Drive.

Over the course of this week the site team will be reinstating the site compound area to the rear of businesses off Kilburn Drive. 

Following this we will be arranging to reinstate the pallisade fencing along with wildflower and grass seeding on the woodland areas surrounding Kilburn Drive and Belford Street. I will keep you all updated on when this is expected to take place. 

If you have any queries at all, please do not hesitate to contact me. 

Thank you 

Becky

Good afternoon, 

Just a quick update on how our reinstatements are going on site. 

The site team have laid the topsoil between Belford Street and Kilburn Drive along with an area that has been block paved to the west of Kilburn Drive. 

Further ground works will be carried out to the rear of business units on Kilburn Drive over the rest of this week. 

Wildflower seeding is planned to take place week commencing 4th April in the embankment area adjacent to Belford Street. 

This will be followed by final tarmac reinstatements week commencing 11th April.

Happy Friday everyone!

Just a quick update regarding our progress on site. 

Things have been progressing well, the work at the bottom of Belford Street was complete last week and the road closure removed. This area will need to be revisited for a short period of time in order to complete resurfacing works, but I will keep you all informed of when this will take place. 

We have also cleared the concrete mass within the embankment area and the pipework has now been installed within the trench. 

Next week we will be completing final connections with the compound area followed by reinstatements across the remainder of our working areas. 

Have a lovely weekend!

Thank you

Good afternoon, 

Following my previous post I just wanted to provide you with an update regarding the planned road closure at the end of Belford Street. 

Our site team are currently working through difficult ground conditions within the current working area between Kilburn Drive and Belford Street. As a result of this the road closure due to start tomorrow will now be pushed back to next week. We anticipate the closure to be in place within the next 7 working days following completion of groundworks within the grassed embankment area. 

If you have any queries or concerns at all, please let us know. I will provide a further update once we have confirmation on when the closure can be expected to be in place. 

Thank you

Good afternoon all, 

Work is currently progressing well within the grassed embankment area between Kilburn Drive and Belford Street. Our site team have constructed 2 new manhole chambers as well as installing the pipework linking them together. Works have also been carried out within the site compound area to install the backdrop pipework within the exisiting shaft.  

Over the next week we will be reducing the embankment and further installing pipework towards Belford Street. 

From Thursday 10 February we will be moving onto Belford Street which will result in a road closure at the end alongside the grass verge. This section of work is expected to take up to 2 weeks to complete.  

If you have any queries regarding this next section of work, please do not hesitate to contact us, 

I hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Thanks
