Gateway 3 (Astral Towers Roundabout) Update
Phase 1 of this scheme is due for completion on Wednesday 25th May, after which the traffic management will be removed and the road layout restored.
Phase 1 consisted of works to the perimeter of the roundabout, which were carried out as planned. However, work to put in place the foundations for the public art to be installed later in the summer proved more complicated than anticipated leading to delay.
Additional deep trial holes were required to be hand dug to locate the exact location of essential telecommunication and gas services leading to delay beyond the anticipated 2-3 weeks.
Phase two of the project involves the installation of the public art and final landscaping, anticipated in June. As the works will be confined to the roundabout this is not expected to involve such disruptive traffic management or road closures.
We apologise for the delay.
