Work continues on the Selly Oak New Road

posted by James Thornett have provided another update on the progress of the Selly Oak New Road.
The following works are due to take place from Saturday 3 May 2008
  • Preparation for surfacing will be taking place to footpaths.
  • Placing service and signal ducts in footpaths of new road
  • Drainage works from attenuation tank units to the Bourn Brook.
  • Kerbs and trimming sub-base to tie-in with Hospital Link Road Section 1.
  • Exposing existing ducts on West side of existing bridge and installing support.
  • Constructing ramp for diverting Northbound traffic out of new island.
  • Commence demolition of West side of existing bridge

I'm not entirely sure what most of this means - nor does it give any real indication of whether the work is progressing on schedule - but still, it's good to know that those attenuation tank units are being looked at!

There appears to be quite a lack of information, blog posts or even images on the web relating to the development of the Selly Oak New Road so if anyone has anything interesting to add, or fancies going out and taking some photos, then please do, and let me know.

(Here are all the previous posts on this subject.)
