Happy New Year!

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas break. Our site team returned to work last Tuesday, and are now busy back on site. 

We have some large deliveries scheduled to arrive on site tomorrow morning. For the safety of road users and our site team, the delivery vehicles will be police escorted along the A19 and via the access track shown on the map below. We would like to kindly remind you, that if you are travelling on the A19 during this time to be aware of slower moving traffic.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued patience and support. If you have any questions you would like answering, please feel free to leave a comment below.
