Works have been completed on the main contract for the redevelopment of the shopping district area of Birchgrove on Caerphilly Road, Cardiff (A469). Additional works are being carried out, as instructed by the client, which are planned to be completed over the next few weeks.
Works involved replacing and realigning the existing kerb line to provide a new controlled crossing location and to provide additional parking bays. The existing footways were excavated and replaced with new block paving, with elements of existing block paving being cleaned and re-laid. Provision of street furniture was also included.
Careful planning of the works was an important consideration throughout the tender and pre-construction phase to ensure continued access to properties, causing minimal disruption to members of the public and business owners.
ERH worked closely with client The County Council of the City and County of Cardiff to inform residents and businesses of the construction activities whilst ensuring safety of the public using clear signage and barriers.
