Upham Road Update August 2018 – Phase 2 Delayed to August 20th

Contractors have come across some unforeseen complications.

Councillors have been informed that contractors have come across some unforeseen complications that have caused further delay on completion of this section. These include the removal of old concrete base in Upham Road significantly thicker than anticipated including reinforced concrete sections and two incidents where old copper water pipes buried decades ago had burst and required visits by Thames Water to repair.

This has had a knock-on effect to the programme by a week which has shifted the date where Phase 1 will end, and Phase 2 will start.
