Update by Christine Taylor

Good morning,

I apologise for the delay in providing an update.

The site team have been in contact and provided an update of what they have been up to over the last couple of weeks.

  • They have installed a stone haul road on site through the football fields behind Powerleague to form access through the site to the works area.
  • As you can see from the traffic update information the public footpath/track is closed between Abbeyfield Close and Ropery Road.  We would ask all members of the public to follow the diversion signs for the alternative route.
  • We have also repositioned one football pitch so that it can still be used while the works are being carried out, access to the pitch is through the pedestrian gate adjacent to Powerleague.

Tony Birkett, our Customer Liaison Officer, has visited site yesterday following notification from Northern Power Grid.  They are attending site today to carry out a connection to our new site.  The works will be at the end of Abbeyfield Close near to parking area/turning circle, in the footpath and into the road.  My team have been and delivered letters to the close, advising of the works.

As always, if anyone has any questions please feel free to contact me direct on here or using the contact us button.

We appreciate your patience whislt we carry out our works.
