Update July 2020

Following on from the Month of June, Road Construction along the Spine road and Broadway connection has been progressed with the completion of kerbing to both sides as well as installation of Edging Kerbs on the Southern footpath side. The Carriageway levels has been built up with Type 1 stone up to underside of Tarmac.

Utility Services (STATS) including Traffic signals, Street lighting, BT, Virgin media, HV Electric and LV Electric supplies have commenced with the majority installed within both the northern and southern footpaths of the new Spine Road.

The Bridge Demolition works on the East side of Broadway has also progressed well in the Month. Namely Beams 7 and 12 have strategically been exposed and fully removed. Foam concrete infill of nearly 500m3 in volume has replaced the excavation void and reinstatement works are now progressing installing kerbs, edging kerbs, street lighting columns and permanent pedestrian barrier.  

The East footpath continues to be closed off at least for now, to allow ongoing construction activities to safely progress. A diversion is in place utilising the West side footpath which is open.

Traffic management in the form of cones, barriers, signage etc continues to be in place and has switched over to accommodate the next phase of works. Lane 1 southbound of the Broadway A663 has been cordoned off whilst still maintaining 3 lanes running. The traffic management installation is adapted as required to allow access certain areas of the works where necessary.

The traffic flows continue to be monitored by TfGM.
