Update from Project Manager, Paddy Tully

Bitmac has now been laid on section 1 of the site from Bloomfield Road to Hiscox’s Drive bridge, although a 20m section prior to the bridge has been left at B&NES request as they are due to carry out repair works to the structure in February, at which time this section will be surfaced. The new section of bitmac should be open to use by Wednesday or Thursday (27 January) this week. We are approximately 3 days behind programme, mainly due to the amount of rain that fell the week before last which made conditions on site difficult to work with. The trackway across Bloomfield Road open space will be removed in the middle of this week and the contractor will make good any damage under this. Works will then commence on section 2 (Hiscocks Drive Bridge – Monksdale Road), although it is likely that these won’t start in earnest until 31 January.
