Another early start as repair work on Kelston Road streams ahead

14 October: It may be wet and muddy on site but the work is continuing regardless. We aim to complete the first row of piles by the weekend to mark another key milestone in the project. As a result of building a properly engineered, stone built platform for the rigs we are able to continue to work through inclement weather and minimise the risk of weather-related delays.
