A183 Coast Road Newsletter No 2

22 December 2022

Newsletter No 2. Week Commencing Monday 26th December.
First published Thursday 22nd December 2022.
This newsletter is to provide you with an update on the A183 Coast Road realignment works.
Progress, the past four weeks
Over the past four weeks, we have made a great progress in preparing the site for the new section of coast road. In addition to establishing the site compound, facilities and perimeter fencing, we have undertaken site investigation works and trial holing.
We are also underway with the initial cut-to-fill earthworks and have introduced a stone protection later to completed areas.
The next four weeks
In the new year we will complete the earthworks, the stone protection layer and preparation for the ground treatment, which will be Rolling Dynamic Compaction. We are looking forward to starting the compaction works week commencing 16th January. 
Christmas hours
Work to realign the A183 Coast Road will be paused from 17:00 on Friday 23rd December until 08:00am on Wednesday 4th January as our operatives and staff take a well-deserved break over the Christmas period.

Traffic management measures will remain in place throughout this period. From everyone at Howard Civil Engineering, we would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. See you in 2023!
Spreading Christmas cheer throughout South Tyneside
Throughout December, Howard Civil Engineering has spread festive cheer by donating £5,000 to a variety of charities and community groups across the north of England! We have chosen 13 different causes to help this festive period and have been documenting these throughout the month using the hashtag #12DaysOfHCE.

Two of these 12 days have directly benefited South Tyneside locals and communities!

Key is a wonderful charity offering a range of housing advice, support, and accommodation services to young people at risk of homelessness in the local area.

In addition to this, Key also operates a food bank which has seen a staggering 310% increase in referrals since the start of the pandemic and now supports over 16,000 people annually.

Howard Civil Engineering is honoured to contribute £500 towards Key to Life Foodbank’s Christmas appeal which will help them deliver food parcels and gifts, host free activities, and provide delicious meals for children and young people who are eligible for free school meals or whose family is experiencing hardship!

Inspire South Tyneside
Inspire South Tyneside is the umbrella body for the voluntary and community sectors across South Tyneside, working alongside communities, the local authority, and statutory partners such as health services to facilitate the development of a vibrant, strong, and sustainable local third sector.

In the run up to Christmas, Inspire has been working in partnership with the Local Authority and the VCSE sector in South Tyneside to identify and put into place Warm Spaces as a response to the cost of living crisis. Howard Civil Engineering is pleased to donate £500 towards these efforts!
