Please see attached the “pull plan” and TM Plan (Traffic Management) for our Castle Rise project due to start 6 June.
Each individual colour depicts a week, and I have labelled each one all the around e.g. Wk 1, Wk2 etc.
What to expect?
Every resident will receive a letter and a leaflet describing the work. We have a “gas interrupt” letter and a “non interrupt” for those near the work, but will not have a gas interruption. (I believe you have received yours already? If not, let me know and I can send you a version to read through)
We will need to be into every property to relight their boilers once we are done. Most will have one interruption but some may have a second if they need any extra remedial work. This will be explained and the date provided to each customer with 48 hours notice. And someone will be onsite to turn the gas back on until about 6pm – Anyone after that can call our dispatch and have an on call engineer come out and pop it back on. (This number is 0800 040 7766 – Customer should have this on any and all letters and cards we pop through the door)
The temporary lights will be in affect from 1st August for five weeks to coincide with the school holidays and reduce the impact on parents picking up and dropping off children. The lights will consist of three-way between Wesley Close, Wold View and Castle drive (The lights will move down each time we move to a new week, so there shouldn’t be lights on all of the junctions at one time) Then in weeks 12 & 13 we will adjust to two-way.
We have door knocked residents within weeks 1-6 and we will continue to visit those within 7+ when the work starts and have an on-site presence if anyone needs anything.
We have also notified the school, provided them with the traffic management information, and they will send out updates to parents to let them know what is happening. We have also offered them a safety assembly to do a Play Safe Stay safe talk to discuss the dangers of playing near/around road works. (It’s a light 30 minute chat with some guessing games and learning, we try to keep it fun while explaining the dangers)
Please feel free to get in touch if you need anything else or have any questions.
