Traffic marshals will guide vehicles to and from the site.

6. How will you be mitigating the impacts of construction?

All mitigation measures that will be implemented during construction can be found in the Construction Management Plan, which can be downloaded here. You can also find details on our Construction page [link].

Some of the mitigation methods that will be used are:

  • All demolition activities to be in accordance with good practice. This includes minimising unnecessary revving of engines, turning off machines when note in use, routine maintenance of machinery, and the use of equipment fitted with effective silencers/insulation.
  • The appointment of a site liaison manager to record, action and investigate complaints.
  • Noise and vibration mitigation by distance and screening.
  • Use of concrete crushers rather than pneumatic hammers.
7. Will there be any road closures during construction?

No roads will need to close during the duration of the works, except for the erection of a crane during demolition works for two days. This would normally be over a weekend to minimise traffic disruption. Residents will be notified well in advance of this taking place. 

8. Who can I contact in case of an emergency?
