End of week 21
Northbound utility diversions complete and continuing with drainage works.
The utility diversions on the northbound side of the A339 have now been completed, which means that other essential infrastructure for this section of road can be completed. The main drainage is being installed. The main pipe work has been installed and progress on backfilling has been completed. Directly on top of the pipe work a layer of concrete is poured which protects the pipe and allows a solid foundation for the road layers which will eventually be constructed on top of it.
This concrete layer is then topped with tarmac, which will allow this lane to be used for traffic when work swaps to the southbound side of the A339.
Activities on site next week:
- Install drainage manholes.
