The Gravity team continues to work across multiple workstreams to ensure that the site is ready for mobilisation and implementation of a large-scale advanced manufacturing facility.
- Ecological management continues on a daily basis through our ecological clerk of works who monitor wildlife activity at the boundaries of the fenced site and conditions onsite. Gravity continues to ensure that the site rhynes are clear and do not present new habitat opportunities. This is consistent with our licencing requirements and ensures there is no barrier to construction and protects species.
- Site maintenance works comprising site-security, road cleaning, grass mowing, fence repairs are continuing as required.
- Site preparation is ongoing. Approximately half the site has been cleared of bramble and other brash so that groundwork can commence. Site-sourced concrete and brickwork is being processed for re-use.
- Importing of recycled stone from the National Grid T-Pylon sites is scheduled to recommence in late March, this will result in increased HGV deliveries to the site, vehicles will use the purpose-built access road ‘Enterprise Way’ to reduce disruption to local communities.
Link Road Landscaping
- Alun Griffiths’s sub-contractor has spent the winter months planting trees and shrubs consisting of a mix of native species to support biodiversity along Enterprise Way.
- The landscaping efforts are nearing completion.
