Good Morning All,
Just a quick update for you!
Construction work is progressing well , helped by the generally good weather that we have experienced during the initial earthworks. The metal sheet piles holding-up the deep excavations for the two new biological filters thankfully went into soft river basin soils (no boulders !) so these could be pushed in using vibratory techniques, avoiding the noisier 'hammer' technique more common in harder ground. We are currently transporting crushed rock to form a layer in the bottom of these 2 large holes (before concrete is poured on top) ..hence there will be more frequent lorry movements through the main gate on the B6348 Chatton Road. Current thinking suggests that this period will actually be the busiest in terms of lorry movements. But some heavier one-off components are due for delivery soon , so please approach the Metal Bridge slowly (especially when heading towards Town Centre) in case a wide load is approaching the narrow section of the bridge. In summary - all going well to date - and we remain on schedule !!
