Latest on the Pipeline Bridgeworks
We have received information from one of the landholders that Tesco contractors intended to start bridging work 31 January, but have been denied access until the final structural drawings have been received and approved by the competent authorities (presumably EDDC, Health and Safety, and Highways) which had required these further drawings. It sounds as though someone had tried to jump the gun, but the relevant authorities had acted with propriety. On the whole this sounds reassuring, but it does keep you on the edge of your seat, especially in the light of their seeking a road closure mid-February to carry out these works. Tell us if you see works commencing on Riverside land.
