A429 Ettington Road, Wellesbourne Section 278 Roundabout Works

Brief  description of scheme

The purpose of the Works is generally to provide access to a housing development from the A429 Ettington Road by constructing a new roundabout on the A429.

When will work commence?

Work is due to commence on the 22nd July 2013 and is scheduled to last approximately 14 weeks.

How much noise will there be?

Whilst work is being carried out the maximum level of  noise you should hear would be the same level that you would experience within a noisy bar, and this should only be for short periods of time.

This will not be a constant noise but will be on various occasions when mechanical activity will be taking place. Officially the level will be up to about 100 decibels (dB)

Examples  of what dB levels are:

70dB is the level of noise from a busy office, electric shaver or alarm clock.
90dB is the level of noise from inside a moving bus.
100dB is the level of noise from a busy bar.
Your health and saftey is very important to us and we will have control measures in place during the work

Bidford Flood Culverts Replacement

Work on the replacement of the flood culverts was fully completed in January 2009.

The closure of Honeybourne Road allowed for replacement of two flood culverts beneath the road that links the River Avon flood plain. The existing culverts needed to be replaced as repair would have cost considerably more than replacement. Therefore replacement was the safest and most cost effective solution. The new culverts are of modern concrete pipes to carry flood water and have a blue lias stone exterior which is sympathetic to the nearby bridge.

This is one of a number of ongoing projects in the County Councils bridge maintenance programme to repair or replace old structures on the highway network for which Warwickshire County Council have a legal responsibility, with a modern design that will serve future generations. The Environment Agency have been fully consulted in the improvements and have agreed to the works.

The works were carried out by R & C Williams who are well known throughout the West Midlands for the efficiency and quality of their construction works.
