Affinity Water – Notice of utility work on Breakspear Road South
As part of HS2 preparatory works, Barhale, on behalf of Affinity Water, will remove a temporary entrance that was originally put in to allow access to the fields on Breakspear Road South. During the work there
will be a temporary lane closure of the north to south lane with traffic signals for three days.
We are providing shorter notice than usual as there is an opportunity to undertake this work during the school half term period, which will hopefully lessen the disruption the lane-closure may cause.
Works on Breakspear Road South
From 17 February work will begin on the removal of a temporary access and to reinstate it back to its former entrance.
The work will involve breaking up and removing the concrete access way, and the removal of temporary pipes. The existing ditch will be cleaned and prepared to maintain the ditch drainage system that is in place. Once the drainage work is complete the new entrance can be constructed.
Most of the work will be carried out from within the site with only the work adjoining Breakspear Road South having to be undertaken from the roadside. When working on the section of the entrance next to the road, two-way temporary traffic signals will be in place to control traffic and give protection to the workforce.
Once this is completed a new vehicle gate will be put in alongside a new pedestrian kissing gate, and new fencing will also be installed to complete the works and keep the field secure.
This work will be completed by 19 February 2020
