Newsletter No 6. Week Commencing Monday 5th October. First published Friday 2nd October 2020
This newsletter is to provide you with an update on the Greengates Junction Improvement works.
Progress, the past two weeks
Drainage works to the P-Loop area have continued to progress including the installation of new headwalls in the realigned ditch area opposite Asda car park. Passers-by will also notice we have undertaken reduced dig earthworks in the P-Loop area where the slip road will be.
Masonry works to build the new stonework retaining walls in the P-Loop section and along New Line have also continued, reusing the reclaimed stone which was saved from our previous works to the area. These works will continue over the coming weeks.
The new Farmfoods entrance between Chilli Chicks and A Smith Opticians has been tarmacked and road markings completed. We are pleased to confirm that the new entrance is now open.
The next two weeks
Our primary focus over the next two weeks will be the formation of the new slip road in the P-Loop area and the removal of the existing Farmfoods entrance.
We will be installing the kerbing and ducting for services on the slip road and preparing this area for tarmac. Now the new Farmfoods entrance is open to the public, the existing Farmfoods entrance will be made redundant. We will be commencing the widening of this arm of the junction, removing the existing tarmac and retaining wall before undertaking reduce level earthworks.
Please note current traffic management measures along Harrogate Road have been relocated closer to the arm of the junction to close off the existing Farmfoods entrance while we undertake removal works on this corner. As of Sunday 11th October, roads will be reduced to two lanes in all directions to enable us to progress with ongoing junction widening works. We anticipate that these traffic management measures will be in place for the foreseeable future, certainly throughout the Christmas period. Please allow extra time for travel when passing through the junction.
Howard Civil Engineering have worked alongside Bradford Council to ascertain the most efficient traffic management measures to enable us to complete the junction improvement works with the highest consideration for safety of our operatives, road users and pedestrians. We apologise in advance for any disruption and delays which you may encounter as a result of these works and thank you for your continued patience and understanding.
