A426 Corporation Street, Rugby – ASDA Development

Rugby Borough Council granted ASDA, part of the WAL*MART family of companies, planning permission for a new supermarket off Corporation Street, Rugby, next to the Central Surgery. A condition of the permission granted calls for a new signalised traffic junction to allow access to the retail development off the existing dual carriageway. The scheme is being wholly funded by WAL*MART.

Access to the supermarket included widening the existing dual carriageway to provide a left turn lane for vehicles. The highway works are substantially complete but further work is still being carried out on Drury Lane and Warwick Street to improve pedestrian areas.

The works comprised highway drainage, resurfacing, street lighting, road markings and signing. The works also involved a considerable number of underground service diversions, including electricity cables, water mains, sewers, gas mains and telecommunications apparatus.

The original contract was awarded to Wrekin Construction Limited and Phase 1 of the contract was completed on the 22 September 2008. Wrekin Construction Limited were put in to administration in early 2009. Phase 2 of the works were retendered and awarded to Carillion Highway Maintenance Limited who commenced on 11 May 2009 and these works were substantially completed on the 18 June 2009.
