To facilitate Persimmon Homes’ construction of a link road between Sellick’s Road and the A3259, it will be necessary to divert a water main away from where the road is to be constructed. The location for the diversion is in fields adjacent to the A3259 and Allen’s Brook, with access via the new part-finished junction off the A3259.
The works are currently programmed to start on Monday 5 October and are anticipated to take approximately 12 weeks to complete.
As part of the works and to ensure the safety of the public, the public right of way that runs alongside Allen’s Brook will be closed.
A small section of footpath between Tudor Park and Allen’s Brook will be diverted around our work, but will be available for use as normal. Warning signage will be in place.
The contractors are aware of how frequently the footpath is used, particularly during the morning and afternoon peak school hours. They will do their utmost to avoid construction traffic movements across the footpath during those hours, but should there be a need, they will ensure that such traffic movement is strictly managed to avoid the potential for conflict with any user of the footpath. Again, warning signage will be in place.
The contractors will always endeavour to be considerate temporary neighbours and keep any inconvenience or disturbance to a minimum.
