End of week 41

Continued progress with utilities and pavement construction.

Last week, the remaining utilities continued being worked on, with new inspection chambers being constructed where needed. Due to their location, they can be fairly substantial, and in the example below will be constructed using concrete around this form work. 

Week 41 chamber formwork

Other smaller chambers have also been constructed using pre-cast concrete rings, similar to the drainage installed previously. The use of both styles depends on their intended purpose after construction. 

Week 41 Manhole construction

More sub-base has also been laid last week, in preparation for the tarmac layers to be laid once the final stages of the utilities have been completed. 

Week 41 stone compaction

Activities on site next week:

  • Continuing to construct the new carriageway pavement and new footpath.
