“All of the construction work is being carefully managed by the project team, in conjunction with partners. We continue to work closely with communities and residents informing them about the works taking place and responding to their enquiries.

“On the occasions that unexpected events do occur, we work swiftly with the contractors to address and rectify these in order to ensure that the impact on the wider programme is minimised.

“We’d like to thank residents and businesses again for their continued patience whilst the construction work takes place.”
