The project has seen significant change over the last four weeks with the temporary car park and link road now closed as we have begun the construction of the new permanent car park. The site team are in the process of breaking and removing the existing concrete floor and it will be excavated to foundation level ready for drainage to be installed. As the temporary car park has been relocated within Montel’s site compound, Sudmeadow Road has now returned to being a two-way traffic system.
Works are continuing to progress on St Ann’s Island with the removal of cabling to the traffic signals and the installation of new traffic signal ducting, drainage and raised paving to assist pedestrians who are vision impaired. We will shortly be completing road crossings and beginning surfacing works to the footway and carriageway.
In Area A, the site team have removed the existing kerbs in preparation for the installation of new ones, installed 6-way traffic signal ducts across St Ann Way, excavated part of the carriageway and begun initial surfacing works.
The site team are making headway on the southern carriageway and footway on Llanthony Road following a recent redesign of the kerbline alignment and levels due to an existing gas main. We have planed the carriageway and footpath, installed kerb lines to the carriageway and central islands from St Ann island up to the entrance of Llanthony Business Park, begun the initial surfacing works with the remainder to follow in early May and removed the existing street light columns and installed new ones. Over the next 4 weeks we will have completed the installation of kerb lines and surfacing works up to binder course on the carriageway and footway.
Please note that we will be undertaking night works between 8pm-5am from Tuesday 2nd May for 4 nights where temporary lights and lane closures will be in place, however, all directions will remain open.
