Construction Update - December 2016
In November, Curo completed the following works at Mulberry Park:
- The windows and roof of the first new home
- The 'super-structure' (bricks and stone work) of another 25 homes
- The 'sub-structure' (foundations) for another 31 homes
During December, we will also be completing the roofs of another four homes.
In January 2017, we will complete the first new home at Mulberry Park and put the roofs on a further 10 homes.
We will also start work to enable buses to run through Mulberry Park. Bus services will be provided by First and are scheduled to start in June 2017.
Construction at Mulberry Park
Construction work at Mulberry Park started in January 2016. All construction work is being carried out in line with the construction management plan agreed with B&NES Council (link to Construction Management Plan).
1. Site traffic and access plans
All traffic movements into or out of the site will be from access gates located on Fox Hill.
We anticipate traffic movements from Monday to Saturday throughout the construction. The volumes of traffic will vary from day to day.
Heavy goods vehicles and site staff will adhere to a traffic management plan, which specifies that all contractor and staff vehicles will be parked on site and not on the public highway.
We will seek to ensure that as far as possible the contractor’s heavy traffic vehicles avoid using Fox Hill when parents/carers use this route to drop off and pick up young children from nursery.
2. Working Hours
These are defined in the Construction Management Plan agreed with B&NES. They are also included in our agreements with our contractors and are:
- 7.30am-6pm, Monday to Friday
- 8am-5pm, Saturdays
- No work will take place on Sundays and Bank holidays
