Progress report

We have completed the testing we were asked to do by the council and are now returning to site, reinstating the compound and getting ready to fully resume work.

What's next

We will be building a temporary footpath before installing a new steel tunnel liner under the A1M Vigo Lane Railway bridge, which will realign the Coast to Coast cycle route.

Timeline

Date Event
July 2019 reinstate site compound
28 June 2019 drop in information session, Barley Mow Village Hall
September 2019 work resumes
September 2020 works completed

Why we need this scheme

The work is needed to ensure the safety of the tunnel and longevity of the bridge. This will involve temporarily closing the Sustrans cycle route and providing an alternative diversion. The works were stopped in November 2018 following the discovery of technical issues which have now been resolved.

Aims

The aims of this scheme are to provide:

  • safety and longevity of the tunnel
  • increased access to cycle way
