This month, work to create the new junction connecting the development to the A38 will begin – currently this is only work within the development itself, which you will be able to see from the A38. This is a major piece of infrastructure for the development and a significant milestone, which will take around seven months to complete.
Work will continue on the roads within Orchard Grove; the new spine road that will eventually run through the length of the new community, has now been tarmacked. More vital infrastructure work is taking place to enable the provision of services like water and gas to the new homes.
A significant amount of earthworks have taken place in recent months to get the development to the stage it now is at – and now earthworks will be scaled back as we head towards the summer. Groundwork will continue in areas where drainage basins are being dug and retaining walls are being created.
