January 2021 - Access Improvement Works
Albright Industrial Estate
Access Improvement Works / Water pipe replacement
The BID worked successfully with the Management Company of the Albright Industrial Estate to obtain quotations to improve access to the estate by making repairs to the access road.
The project was severly delayed due to drainage issues at the entrance. Bore hole testing was carried out to ascertain how to treat the deteriorated areas in question. Due to flooding of the ditch to the front of Albright Industrial Estate, which was being investigated by the Council, the proposed works were delayed pending further remediation. It was estimated that the Coucnil would complete the ditch works in Spring 2020, but unfortuantely COVID19 delayed the works further. When the works were eventually carried out a water leak was identified and reparied, further delaying the completion date to January 2021.
The BID maintained regular communication with Council officers on behalf of the management company throughout to ensure the works were prioritised and agreed that the unused funding towards the road reparis could be utilsied for the water leak, thus allowing completion of all the proposed works in as timely a manner as possible.
