February 2015 Site Progress Notes
Work started on site with vegetation clearance and Ground Investigation along the route.
Ecological surveys and reptile re-location had already been carried out by Bristol City Council ecologists.
The Busway construction is to be elevated above the top water levels of the flood plain to the east of the Long Ashton Park and Ride car park, and extensive ground investigation is required to design an embankment which will not settle over time. The chosen method of ground stabilisation is wick drains and surcharge which whilst very reliable takes a long time and as such will drive an early start to work on site expected in July of this year.
