With the expansion of the IT teams into phase 5 we are constructing a link bridge between phase 5 and the old building to make the journey between buildings faster and drier. At the same time we are widening the exit lane from the phase 5 entrance down to the traffic lights to allow for three exit lanes to be available from site. This should be good news because it will enhance the experience for leaving site
In preparation for the bridge works, the road widening works will commence on Monday 4th March, we will work with the contractors to ensure the site is kept safe, clean and tidy with minimal disruption. The link bridge works will commence on Monday 11th March, with a programme taking 26 weeks, and the physical structure being visible on Tuesday 23rd April following the Easter Break and pending good weather during the early stages of the construction.
Whilst the work takes place there will be a number of diversions for traffic and pedestrians at weekends and during planned night works only. These communications will be sent out via email prior to them being put in place by our travel plan team, please look out for these regular updates.
Please accept our apologies in advance for any disruption caused whilst we endeavour to keep disruption to a minimum.
