Latest updates and progress
ONGOING THROUGHOUT 2017
Everards Meadows roadworks
If you have driven by Everards recently you will have seen porta cabins and diggers appearing. It’s not the start of our new brewery, or the demolition of our current one (we’re still in here brewing!) but some preparation work for our future plans.
Everards are working with construction partner, Kier, to start some work on our new Everards Meadows site. The work is to create an entrance and exit plus bring drainage onto the site. The work will take around 27 weeks in total and has started this week on Soar Valley Way and on the Everards Meadows site which is opposite Everards’ current home.
We know that roadworks can be challenging so have spent a lot of time liaising with Leicestershire County Council, all utility companies and Fosse so that our works here minimise disruption for everyone passing by or visiting the area. We’ll be staggering the work and completing as much as possible at night time and we have delayed the start to avoid clashing with the Leicestershire County Council works nearby.
We’ll be updating this page fortnightly with our progress and what's coming up.
UPDATE FOR w/c 8th May
You may have seen some signs advertising a closure on Grove Way (the road from Soar Valley Way to the Everards Way roundabout into Fosse Park South) The road isn't completely closed but is only open one way, allowing traffic to flow into Fosse Park. All other exits are open to use as alternatives.
The closure started on 8th May and is planned for 7 weeks. We appreciate that this may cause some inconvenience, indeed it will for our own team and deliveries, so we will try to work as quickly as we can.
We are now forming the new entrance to Everards Meadows from Soar Valley Way. This involves building up existing ground levels to bring the new entrance up to the same level as the existing road. The new drainage layout is also being installed. You may see some deliveries to the site to aid these groundworks but these will be timed to minimise disruption to traffic wherever possible.
We are continuing to drill under Soar Valley Way and Grove Way and have tunnelled over 60 metres already!
