As the incumbent contractor for Nottingham City Council’s Term Contract for Highways Works, Section 278 scheme focused on the provision of new access/egress for the new Sainsbury Store, which was now close to completion. Given the close proximity to the City Centre, this busy commuter road required carefully planned Traffic and Pedestrian Management to ensure the safety of all stakeholders during the construction phase.
After establishing contact with Network Management and the statutory undertakers, works commenced with tree surgery, followed by the realignment of the carriageway and footways to accommodate road widening. Planing of the carriageway was followed by resurfacing and the installation of new traffic signals, which completed the works enabling the new store to open on time. This scheme was completed on time and within budget.
