Phase 3 is expected to start in January 2015. Subject to weather conditions, this phase is scheduled to be completed in February 2015.
Lane closures will be required on both carriageways at various times during construction, for the safety of the work force and road users.
Wherever possible the works are being undertaken at night to minimise disruption to the travelling public during the day; however, daytime traffic management will be necessary at times.
Where this is to happen, advance information will be provided by ‘Traffic Wales’ on road signs.
The following measures are in place will be in place to minimise disruption;
- Night-time working has been implemented with traffic management being removed during the daytime when and where possible.
- The contractor is obliged to have all traffic management removed by 14:00 on each Friday to avoid peak and weekend disruption, and is only permitted to reinstate it on Sunday night for works recommencing on Monday morning.
- The workforce has been increased (especially traffic management and safety fence subcontractors) to ensure works are completed either on or before the planned programme. The current construction periods (Sunday night – 14:00 Friday) present a challenging timescale for the installation of a number of the new resilience assets. The installation of these assets within this timescale and to return to normal operation for weekend traffic flow, has and will require the contractors involved to work 24 hour day and night shifts in order to ensure completion.
- The concrete being used is a strengthened design mix with a reduce setting time which will lessen the need for traffic management to be in place during the day time.
- Information signs are in place to notify passing traffic of reasons why a lane closure is in place.
- At all times, the minimisation of disruption to the travelling public has been a priority within this project, with contractors being contractually obliged to operate and programme their works in such a way as to demonstrate that disruption has been minimised.
