Update by Sarah Jayne Vickers

Good afternoon,

Hope you are well and looking forward to the weekend. We have laid 56% of the pipe work so far. There are two teams working on the project and since my last update, The first team have completed of the construction manhole 2 (picture below) and are laying pipe towards manhole 3 as team 2 are progressing from manhole 4 to manhole 3.

After several concerns raised about the Traffic Management, Premier have been back out last week and confirmed the equipment is operating as it should be. If you suspect there is a problem with the lights, please flag this to a member of the team, or alternatively if it’s out of hours please ring Premier Traffic Management on 0151 4941199.

The footpath along The Lane outside School Cottages is fully closed which also prevents access to the post box and notice board. Royal Mail have made sure all post has been removed prior to us blocking it off.

We also have a road sweeper coming along to site regularly to keep on top of the muck that is being tracked backward and forwards by the machinery.

As always if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Enjoy your weekend!
