This photo shows construction of the reinforced earth wall that leads up to the Two Mile Coppice underpass. The wall is being seeded as it is built, and over time it will look like a tall grass bank.
Elsewhere, there’s a lot of work between Littlemoor and Ridgeway to complete cable trenches and drainage.
Earthworks to form the road, footpaths and roadside bunds will also continue from Chalbury Basin to the Littlemoor ponds. There’s also a lot of drainage being put in along this section this month.
The Lodmoor Park and Ride is starting to take shape, with the bunds of earth that go around the site currently being constructed.
Work will continue on the bridges this month; some will be surfaced and waterproofed, others will have rails and vehicle restraints installed.
Chalk stabilisation, to form the first layer of the road, also starts this month.
