This month marks the completion of the A38 junction work. We will have a new route in and out of Orchard Grove, enabling its future residents to easily access the local area. Thank you to those who have used the A38 during the work – we appreciate your patience and look forward to officially ‘opening’ the new roundabout.
On site, progress on the pumping station continues. This month will see a great deal of activity including construction of pipework and valves; backfilling and formation of the sub-base; drainage to the new pipework; building the kiosk and installing slabs, fixing grilles, covers and slabs into place; further work on pumps, control panel, kiosk; cabling and other equipment; creating kerbs and exterior area; and finishing pipework and surrounds.
Work on the roads within the development will carry on, with the spine road up to Comeytrowe Lane taking shape. Across the site the earthworks continue, and new fibre connections will go live. Along the top perimeter, new fencing separating the development from Jeffrey’s Way will be finished.
A big moment for Orchard Grove, it is expected that the first residents will move into their homes by the end of the month.
