ALL OF THE BELOW IS OUR OWN INTERPRETATION AND POSSIBLY SUBJECT TO CHANGE
Relief Road works will continue on the airfield north of the Perimeter Track to lay stone on new perimeter road and to cut side V ditches for bypass drainage and form bunds. Additional work is required to repair an uncharted drainage pipe uncovered and remove a discovered buried structure.
On the central part from Appletree Road to Perimeter track they will continue balancing pond excavation
On southern part (Allens Orchard to Appletree Road) they will complete the soil strip and commence excavations
The Heras Fencing to protect the site will be erected around the site of balancing pond excavations at Allens Orchard (probably around the middle of next week) and Trial holes dug and tree removal on the green will be commenced the week after. The Millennium Oak will unfortunately have to be removed but they are hoping to preserve the silver birch on Allens Orchard which has now been wrapped in bunting to “point it out”.
Work will continue at Aston-le-Walls crossroads installing drainage and ducting on all four quadrants and widening earthworks to the SE including part time traffic light control.
Around the 18th the A361 site entrance widening works will be started which may cause some minor traffic interference.
