Artis Avenue – Proposed Works (Shared on behalf of SBC)

Artis Avenue – Proposed Works (Shared on behalf of SBC)

I am writing to inform you of the upcoming works where the Contractor, Ringway, will be working on behalf of Swindon Borough Council to undertake maintenance repairs along the footways at Artis Avenue. The site extents can be viewed on the document attached.

The purpose of the scheme is to resurface the footway in order to increase the life span and to provide a safer and better surface for pedestrians.

To facilitate these works, the Contractor will be undertaking some minor works to kerbs and footways prior to the below surfacing date.

The works are provisionally programmed to commence from Monday 19th July 2021 for 3 days between the hours of 08:00 and 17:00, however, on occasions they may over run slightly due to circumstances outside of their control such as plant breakdowns, if weather conditions are unfavourable, or occasionally we discover the need for additional repairs once the work has started.

The work force will maintain pedestrian access for the duration; however due to the nature of the works, some disruption is possible and vehicular access may need to be restricted at times. It is essential that the areas remain un-trafficked until the new material has set, as early use could lead to premature failure so works will be undertaken in multiple phases.

I would like to take this opportunity to apologise for any inconvenience that these works may cause, but trust you will appreciate the necessity for these essential works to maintain Swindon’s highway network. Due to the current pandemic we will ensure that we follow all the government guidelines to enforce safety of our work force and will use measures to ensure that we do have social distancing between ourselves and the public.

Should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me on the details provided. If you wish to discuss the works whilst they are in progress, please speak to a member of the workforce who will direct you to the appropriate person.
