Progress report

Highways England’s trial of the Commonplace tool for gathering information about local people’s and road users’ views about our schemes is due to end in September. Towards the end of last year, the A5036 Port of Liverpool access project team made use of Commonplace to ask how people use Rimrose Valley Country Park. We hoped to be able to use the site again as we moved towards public consultation on the design of the scheme. However, the delays and uncertainty arising out the coronavirus pandemic have contributed to delays to consultation, and it became clear that we would not be able to make further use of the facility before the end of the trial. That is why we have now taken the page down and removed the link to Commonplace from this page.

Highways England nationally will review the effectiveness of Commonplace as a tool, and may decide to roll it out nationally. If that is the case, we will likely use the tool again. We found the information gained from it useful, and we’d like to thank everybody who contributed their thoughts, which we are using to inform the design process. While much depends on how soon the present lockdown comes to an end, we hope to be in a position to consult on the design later this year.


Signs at Beach road entrance

It has been brought to our attention that some notices have been posted at the Beach Road entrance to Rimrose Valley Country Park claiming to come from Highways England.

These notices are fake and have not been posted by us.

We assume these have been posted to spread alarm and confusion. Please be assured that we currently have no works planned for Rimrose Valley, and no plans to close any of the entrances. Construction of the scheme, if given development consent, will not start before late 2022 at the earliest.

Our thanks to Rimrose Valley Friends for informing us of these notices and removing them.


What's next?

Some survey work will continue to be carried out in accordance with a Covid-19 specific risk assessment, based on advice from Public Health England. We are currently considering when and how best to carry out the surveys referred to below.

Our full programme of surveys

Environmental surveys

  • Vegetation surveys – Spring/ summer 2020
  • Otter surveys – Spring/summer 2020
  • Bat roost inspections and surveys – April to September 2020
  • Breeding birds survey – April 2020 to August 2020
  • Badger survey – June/ September 2020
  • Water vole survey – May/ September 2020
  • Reptile surveys – March to May 2020
  • Amphibian surveys – April to June 2020
  • Landscape surveys – Summer 2020
  • Noise surveys – Postponed
  • Air quality surveys – Ongoing

Ground investigation and other surveys

  • Ground investigation surveys – Programme completed. Some additional area-specific survey work may be required later in 2020
  • Non-motorised users and public rights of way surveys – Spring/summer 2020

Community news

We'll continue to work with local representatives to identify opportunities to improve the overall environment for people in the area – both within the Rimrose Valley and along the current A5036.

Why we need this scheme

The A5036 between the Switch Island Interchange and Princess Way is a key commuter route, as well as the main access connecting the Port of Liverpool with the motorway network.

The road currently suffers from severe congestion, which causes delays, safety issues, and environmental concerns. The Port of Liverpool is set to become even busier with the opening of Liverpool2, which will add to the pressure on the A5036.

The proposed bypass will take traffic away from communities by Church Road and Dunnings Bridge Road, reducing congestion at junctions and along local roads.

Improving the A5036 will make journeys safer, quicker and more reliable as well as improving local life and regional economic growth.

The A5036 Port of Liverpool project is known as a Nationally Significant Project (NSIP). This means that we must apply for a Development Consent Order (DCO) to proceed with the project.

This short video has more information.

Aims

Our key aims for the scheme are to:

  • improve traffic conditions
  • improve safety on the route for all road users and road workers
  • minimise environmental impacts and protect/enhance the environment
  • support economic growth
  • improve accessibility and integration
  • reduce future maintenance requirements
  • provide value for money

Environment impact

To develop a clear picture of the ground conditions, surveys are due to start in Rimrose Valley in January 2020, with safety being our number one priority.

A risk assessment has been carried out to understand what materials may be buried within the park, which has helped us plan how we can work safely.

Our plans include ensuring work sites are fenced off from the public, work is continually monitored, and specialist equipment is available if needed. We have shared these plans with the Health and Safety Executive.

Equipment will not be left on site overnight and trial pits will be filled in on the same day they are dug. Boreholes will have to remain in place for longer periods but will be securely covered or fenced off. Site staff will be wearing personal protective equipment (PPE).

Residents have asked us about how we would deal with the discovery of hazardous materials. We have listed the tried and tested techniques below and an example of where we would work with specialists.

Asbestos - no specific locations in Rimrose Valley have been identified as containing asbestos but it is something that is frequently found in old tips and is a potential hazard we are aware of.

The main danger with asbestos is inhaling it as dust. Dampening the sites continuously reduces dust to negligible levels. Should significant dust or larger pieces of asbestos material be found, drilling work will be halted while the area is assessed further. If appropriate, work will stop altogether at that location and the area will be left safe.

Complying with Health and Safety guidance, larger pieces of asbestos may be removed for testing or left in place, whichever is judged to be safest. Records would then be updated to show where it is for later removal if necessary.

Anthrax - like a number of other contaminants, anthrax is only likely to be detected during laboratory testing of samples, so the best protection will be nitrile gloves, good hygiene and housekeeping to ensure that the contaminant is not spread. It is important to stress, there are no records of anthrax in Rimrose Valley. It is very rare and we do not expect to find it.

>Gas - drilling boreholes in old landfill sites is common in the UK. Methane and other noxious gases can be encountered underground. For this reason, monitoring equipment will be available at the drilling locations. Where gas is detected, work will be stopped if appropriate. The borehole may be either covered or left to vent, depending on the type and quantity of gas.

Heavy metals - as with anthrax, the presence of heavy metals is mostly likely to be detected during laboratory testing of bored samples, so the use of gloves and good hygiene and housekeeping apply here as well. This will be combined with clean drilling techniques, including the use of clay pellets and environmental seals, to prevent cross-contamination of soil or rock and draining into the water table. These approaches are also used to prevent the spread of other potential contaminants such as oils and coal tar.

Unexploded ordnance - using information from historic surveys, two locations have been identified in Rimrose Valley where unexploded ordnance (UXO) may be present. A UXO specialist has been consulted on how best to proceed in dealing with this potential hazard who has concluded the risk during the investigation is low. Survey staff have been briefed on the risks by the specialist. They will proceed carefully, calling on the specialist’s support as necessary. If UXO is found, it may be removed or left undisturbed, whichever is safest.

It is important to bear in mind that ground investigation work is not the same as removal. Ground investigation helps us gain a more detailed understanding of what is present on site and what may need removing or treating if the scheme receives planning permission. We will use the information gained from the surveys to develop plans for safe removal of any materials and share them at a later stage.
