Explanation: Due to the current milder climate and with the resources available, we have made the decision to include weekend working to maximise productivity. In doing so, we hope to minimise the risk of disruption caused by weather delays.

Due to the nature of the works, a 10mph convoy traffic management system will be in place to ensure the safety of both our workforce and travelling members of the public. During the works there may be restricted access for periods of time at local access points to ensure the works can be carried out safely.
