Slow progress on Westchester Link

Residents will have noticed the slow progress with the construction of the new road. According to Stephen Harte, WCC Project Manager, the delay has been caused by unforeseen unsuitable ground conditions for the abutment of the bridge at Middleton Road. The bridge has now been redesigned and work is about to recommence, with completion expected by March 2012. The previously advised completion date for this bridge was July 2011. In this same location, the construction of the Middleton Road roundabout is due to commence in September.

At the west (Churton Park) bridge some progress has been made with the construction of the west abutment. This bridge is expected to be complete by Christmas.

Excavation for the major part of the project can not commence until the bridges are complete. Overall completion of the project has been set back now to the end of 2012.
