End of week 37 and 38
Utilities have been moved over the previous two weeks.
The past two weeks have seen significant progress with the utility diversions, similar to those that were undertaken for the northbound carriageway. The excavation for the widening has mostly finished, and work is being undertaken to populate the area with the utilities that need to be moved from their old positions.
The two major utilities to be diverted on this side of the carriageway were for water and gas, as well as more fibre lines.
Additional work was undertaken at the southern end of the scheme to reconstruct the footpath at the back of the new alignment. The edgings have been laid out ready to be lifted into the concrete bed and backing.
Activities on site next week:
- Backfilling over utilities
