The new watermain pipe is now fully operational and all trenching is expected to be complete before the Christmas break. Over the next two weeks we will begin road resealing work, this will include the installation of a crash barrier around the Shag Road corner. The Peacocks Gallop team will close down between Friday 22 December and Monday 15 January. Over this time we will minimise our site and reinstate the car parking area on the beach side of the road.
When we return in the New Year we will complete the roading, kerb, storm water, landscaping and road marking.
Two way traffic will be maintained during the day. We will continue to work at night installing the pipework, and we will need to complete around three nights of roading work from Sunday 10 December. We will need to carry out this work again toward the end of January.
Early November 2017
Night work continues
Due to the large amount of rock that has been found under Main Road, night work will continue for a further four weeks. This is expected to be until early December. We apologise for the extended timeframe, we have two crews on site to complete this work as quickly as possible.
To break through the rock we will need to use diggers with rock breaking attachments (as pictured) and concrete saws. As this work can be noisy we will ensure that it is carried out before 10:00pm each night.
From Sunday 24 September for around two weeks we will be carrying out night work on Main Road, near Peacocks Gallop. The night works will be carried out between 7pm and 6am on Sunday-Thursday evenings. Work will involve installing a section of the wastewater pipe and wastewater manholes.
A stop-go traffic control system will be in place while this work is underway so please allow extra time for your journey. We know night works can be disruptive so we are aiming to complete this work as soon as possible.
Traffic impact update
From Wednesday 13 September for around one week traffic heading downhill from Clifton Terrace will exit to Main Road via Clifton Bay. Traffic heading uphill will still enter Clifton Terrace from Main Road. This is so that we can install the new fresh water supply pipe along Main Road, in front of Clifton Terrace.
17 August 2017
We are now into our fourth week and construction is progressing well. Work has begun installing the new fresh water main along Main Road, this is expected to take around five weeks. Work to install the new wastewater pipe has now begun and is expected to take until around the end of November.
Our site office at Clifton Bay will be open between 12:30pm and 2:00pm on Wednesdays. If you have any questions or would like to find out more about the work, drop in to our office.
Traffic will remain two way during the day. Night work will be required on narrow sections of the road where we are unable to maintain two lanes of traffic. During night work traffic will be maintained with a stop/go system.
21 July 2017
Ground investigation work is now complete and from next week, Monday 24 July, we will begin our main work.
Our work will include rock breaking which is when a digger or saw is used to break up the rock underneath the road. Rock breaking can be noisy but we will be taking all measures to minimise disruption.
Dewatering and pumps
To give us a dry work area we need to carry out dewatering. This involves drilling well points into the ground and pumping the water out.
A dewatering pump needs to run continuously until all work is completed. If the pump is turned off the trenches will flood, delaying all trench work.
Ground water is treated using settlement tanks or filtration devices before being returned to the sea.
