The Reasons are; In order to reduce the risk on the main works package the diversionary works are to be undertaken upfront which in turn will reduce the main programme timescales and benefit the construction phase of the project.

Options considered and rejected were – The proposed highway alignment has been tweaked and revised numerous times to reduce as far as practically possible the requirement for diversions however some diversionary works cannot be avoided.

Assessment of Risk – Low

 

Approval of decision will allow PO’s to be raised to start the Statutory Undertakers mobilisation which would otherwise delay the commencement of these works and push back the main works package. It is noted that C5/C6 Purchase Orders can be cancelled prior to works commencing and will be kept under review pending FBC submission and approvals.

The source of funding is TfGM Growth Deal 3 Fund
