Update 26 April 2017
Work is progressing well and the team on site is now starting to lay the water main in Peacock Lane.
From Tuesday 2 May we will be implementing the second phase of our traffic management which will require a lane closure on the northbound exit of the roundabout off Doncastle Road leading to Berkshire Way.
Once this section of pipework has been laid, we will then introduce the third phase of our traffic management to close the southbound entry from Berkshire Way to Doncastle Road. The northbound lane will be reopened at this time.
Once the roundabout crossing is complete, we will look to implement the final phase of our traffic management which will be a full one-way system around Doncastle Road.
We anticipate that we will be at this stage in three weeks’ time, depending on site conditions encountered as we progress.
Doncastle Road - phase two map
Update 13 April 2017
We have now installed 302 metres of the new pipework and we have reached the roundabout at the slip road leading to the A329.
We are currently laying our new pipe in Peacock Lane and are working towards Doncastle Road to connect to the pipework laid there.
Our current traffic management will remain in place over the Easter weekend and our gang will be working tomorrow (Friday 14 April).
We expect to change the traffic management in place from the week commencing 1 May as we work through the roundabout and along the eastern section of Doncastle Road.
Update 10 April 2017
Our works still remain near to the entrance with Daler-Rowney and we expect to still be in this area this week. With the additional pipe laid last week, we have now laid 260 metres of pipe in total so far.
We expect to carry out a large scale survey of the utilities in the area over the next couple of weeks as the gang on site are coming across a number of unknown utilities in the area.
Update 4 April 2017
We are currently working near to the entrance with Daler-Rowney and works are progressing well. To date we have laid 155 metres of new pipe.
We are currently looking to carry out a large scale survey of all utilities in the area. This is due to our contractors coming across numerous unchartered utilities within the road.
Update 10 March 2017
Work along Doncastle Road is progressing well and we are near to the entrance with Daler-Rowney. To date, 96 metres have been laid and we expect another 48 metres to be laid over the weekend.
We are expecting a delivery of concrete at the weekend to allow us to start reinstating the road next week before we move onto the next section.
