The works will commence on Monday 21st October and will be completed Friday 1st November between the hours of 19:00 and 06:00 (no weekend working). however, on occasions they may over run due to uncontrollable circumstances such as plant breakdowns, if weather conditions are unfavourable, or occasionally we discover the need for additional repairs once the work has started.
There are advance information signs being erected on site giving confirmed start dates.
Due to the nature of the works and the local environment, the works will be carried out within a temporary road closure, to ensure that adequate health & safety is maintained for the contractor and local residents.
Road markings and ironwork adjustments may need to be completed at a later date.
The main diversion route for all "through" traffic works are being undertaken within the road closure will be east on A303, south then west on Porton Road, Boscombe Road, Underwood Drive and Stockport Avenue, north on A345,
The Contractor will maintain pedestrian access for residents for the duration of the works; but depending upon what operation is being undertaken and where it's being undertaken residents may find that when accessing or egressing from there property in their vehicle, they may experience a delay and have to wait for plant to be moved out of the carriageway. Suggestions have been made to resident what when leaving their property, to allow extra time for any possible delays and when returning to their property, there will be traffic management operatives located at the extents of the works, to speak to them, explain where they live and they will be able to assist.
There will be points during the material laying process where vehicular access will be restricted as residents won't be able to drive over the newly laid material, as early trafficking could lead to premature failure, therefore I have recommended to resident that if works are being undertaken in the vicinity of their property to speak to the workforce in advance to ask if there will be any restrictions with regard to access.
Signing will be in place advising that local businesses will be open as usual. A letter drop will be undertaken to all residents and businesses within the site extents.
