The following update has been received from National Highways: -

"As of the end of Friday 21st June, the placement works were complete, with a finishing team working on tidying up the boundary edges. The wooden fencing along the top of the slope behind the VRS (barrier) is complete, and demobilisation of the compound area is underway.

A summary of works includes:

  • The placement and compaction of engineering fill.

  • The works to repair / replace damaged drainage in the verge has been completed.

  • Replacement fencing has been installed along the top of the slope.

  • An order to install the new P4 terminals alongside the replacement of the removed barrier has been placed.

  • The compound area will be returned to its pre-project state by the 28th June.

This week will see the replacement of the barrier on 24th June, including the incorporation of the P4 terminal ends. The installation of the geotechnical monitoring point coverings will also be completed this week. As currently programmed, the TM will be removed on the night of Mon 1st July, following hydro sweeping of the road over the weekend prior and the site will be fully demobilised next week."
