Alan Davies Way Bridge (Rassau West) - Open
The new bridge constructed on Alan Davies Way is now open. It now allows traffic to use the north-south link at the western end of the Rassau Industrial Estate. The southern access link is now closed as a through-road, except for access to businesses along that section. A schematic drawing of access routes to each area of the industrial estate can be seen by clicking HERE.
Carno Underpass Takes Shape
The concrete arch sections which form the culvert beneath Carno Embankment have now being lifted into place. Each of the 150 units weighs approx 28tonnes and when placed will create a 9m high, 18m wide by 150m long culvert. The valley and arch are now in the process of being backfilled with material excavated from other parts of the scheme.
