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 18th September
The work on the Soar Valley Way entrance is nearing completion. A large amount of surfacing work was undertaken mid-September during overnight works to minimise disruption. There are still some signs to be erected and then the temporary traffic lights are due to be removed overnight some time w/c 25th September, once the new ones have been fully tested. The entrance will be complete once final commissioning work has taken place.
On Narborough Road, we are busy connecting the utilities. There will be some overnight works for the next two weeks so a lane will be closed at night only to minimise disruption. Meanwhile, kerbs are being installed and also footpaths and cycle ways are being created.
