Site Progress Update
Ashton Fields to Rail Bridge
Following completion of piling, we have started construction of all three bridges at Ashton Fields which are progressing well and the deck beams are scheduled to be installed in August and September.
The majority of the drainage runs are complete and carriageway sub formation in the form of a cement bound granular sub-base will be placed in August. The final surfacing will follow the completion of the tie-ins to each bridge structure.
Pumps are in place to allow the extension of Old Colliter's Culvert to be constructed.
Portishead Rail Bridge
Service diversions and ground investigation have been completed to allow working platforms to be constructed for our piling operation on both of the Skew Bridge approach ramps and the piling rigs have been delivered to site to start work during w/c 11th July.
Bristol Water are repairing a leaking pipe adjacent to our works which required the felling of some trees.
Rail Bridge to Cumberland Road
Piling to Avon Crescent Ramp was completed on the 9th June following a short delay caused by a piling rig break down.
Preparation work on the piles is now being completed to allow the ramp to be built. Drainage is being installed along the length of the works.
