Site investigation works are taking place during January and February 2020.
These include ground investigation (digging holes in the footpaths and drilling into the road, footpaths and verges at various locations), as well as manhole surveys. These investigations will be carried out at various locations along the A457 Spring Hill / Dudley Road corridor, between Spring Hill Roundabout and Summerfield Park.
Site investigation works are expected to start Monday 13 January 2020 and will last for approximately 5 weeks. During this time there may be short-term lane closures, road narrowing and temporary footpath closures and diversions. Any works that will affect traffic will be undertaken during the day and outside of peak commuting times in order to minimise impact.
The results from these essential surveys will help us understand the ground conditions and inform construction methods. Subject to approval of Full Business Case the main construction works are scheduled to start in November 2020. More information on how the works will be carried out and managed will be available in the summer.
