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 7th August
On Soar Valley Way, the footpath and cycle ways are nearing completion. Work continues on making the new entrance. Grove Way is fully open again and temporary lights have been installed so that the old traffic lights can be moved and replaced. Work is underway to replace the existing manholes and 1800 metres of ducting is being laid. The temporary lights are programmed and timed the same as the original lights.
On Narborough Road South, we are still drilling under the road and this is progressing well despite a couple of setbacks. We believe we came across the old road construction buried below the existing road. Work continues on the exit here too.
