Please find set out below the information in response to the above
request:

 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request. Below is an answer to
your questions which is supplemented with the attached information.

 

1.    When is the "Open spaces" part of the Valley Gardens Scheme likely
to start and when is the work on this likely to finish?

 

The exact timing for the Open Spaces element will be identified  by the
Main appointed works contractor. The works will form part of the Main
Contractors duty and therefore it is expected that it will be implemented
in conjunction and at the same time as the highway main works. The
duration of works is currently expected to commence in the Summer 2018 and
last for a period of 2 years.  The exact programme will be discuss and
determined with the Main Works contractor.

 

2.    What road-works and diversions are required for this part of the
Scheme?

 

As part of the design development stages we have appointed a local
contractor to help us better understand how the construction phase might
be carried out.  This work enabled us to produce an indicative
construction phase plan and associated traffic management plan which has
been developed in coordination with key stakeholders.  We will be
proposing that the appointed main contractor utilises this indicative
implementation phase plan and associated Traffic Management plan to
develop their final construction methodology.  

 

The indicative  construction phase and associated Traffic Management is
detailed below.  The scheme build has been broken down in to multiple
phases of operations designed to reduce impacts during the construction
phase. To note all greenspace works to be programmed to occur in
collaboration with highway works in so far as it is reasonably practicable
to do so.

 

·         Phase 1 commences on the southbound section of the A270 Richmond
Parade/Grand Parade from 50metres north of the junction with St Peter’s
Place and proceeds southerly to a point approximately 50m north of the
junction with Edward Street.  The works will necessitate the inside lane
being removed from use and all southbound traffic will be temporarily
redirected into the outside lane by the means of temporary traffic
management.

·         Phase 2 switches southbound traffic on the A270 to the newly
completed inside lane by the means of temporary traffic management between
the junctions of St Peter’s Place and Marlborough Place.  Phase 2 will
also allow construction works to occur in St Peter’s Place including
setting aside an area to be used as a temporary Taxi pick up and drop off
point whist the scheme continues to phase 6 when the new permanent taxi
rank will have been completed.

·         Phase 3 encompasses the Victoria Gardens area and allows for
works on the outside lane of the southbound A270 Grand Parade between
Marlborough Place and Church Street and the northbound A23 Marlborough
Place with all traffic diverted on to the inside lanes by the means of
temporary traffic management.

·         Phase 4 switches northbound A23 Marlborough Place traffic on to
the outside lane and manages traffic using Church Street by the means of
temporary traffic management to allow for access and construction to occur
in unison.

·         Phase 5 allows construction on the north bound inside lanes of
Gloucester Place, St Georges Place and York Place with all northbound
traffic temporarily redirected into the outside lanes by the means of
temporary traffic management.

·         Phase 6 removes the northbound segregated bus lanes in the area
of St Georges Place and York Place with northbound buses joining general
traffic flows in the newly completed northbound sections of St Georges
Place and York Place as constructed in phase 5.

·         Phase 7 allows for works to the segregated northbound and
southbound bus lanes in Gloucester Place with buses joining normal
northbound and southbound traffic lanes.

·         Phase 8 will manage eastbound traffic flows exiting North Road
and crossing Marlborough Place by the means of temporary traffic
management with bus flows redirected to the new traffic lanes on the
eastern side of Valley Gardens as necessary.

·         Phase 9 closes the A270/Richmond Place cut through and no
temporary diversions or traffic management is required apart from closing
the site to traffic.

·         Phase 10 finalises construction of the Grand Parade/Edward
Street traffic islands and is managed by means of temporary traffic
management.

 

An overview construction phase drawing is attached for your information. 
In order to support this phase plan there are a series of proposed local
diversion routes which will be in place during some of the construction
phases but not for the entire build programme. Also attached are proposed
strategic diversion routes.

 

3.    When is the "Traffic Management" part of the Scheme likely to begin
and when is it likely to end?

This likely to commence in the Summer 2018 once mobilisation period has
commenced it is likely to continue in phases until the total duration of
construction phase is likely to be at least 2 years.

 

4.    What road-works, alternative routes and diversions are likely to be
required for this part of the Scheme?

See above

 

5.    What parts of the Highway in the new Scheme are proposed to be
one-way?

See attached traffic flow routes which include ‘with scheme’ traffic
routes. 

 

6.    What displacement of traffic is likely to result during and after
the work on the Highways?

We don’t hold this information but where possible  traffic  will continue
to travel thought Valley Gardens under traffic management arrangements.
 Traffic count data will be collected post implementation.

 

7.    Will any bus routes need to be diverted during the work?

The phase plans enable bus movement during the construction and local
diversions may apply to buses where appropriate.
