Funding Source

2019/20 Block 3 Local Transport Capital Budget underspend




The reasons are

The Road Traffic Accident damaged the parapets and reinforced concrete portal wall to Broad Street Roundabout North West Subway and were unsafe in its current state. It was identified by inspection that the damage required repair/ replacement works as soon as practicable to reduce the time of the current Temporary Vehicular Crash Barriers protecting the area.


Options considered and rejected were:


Not to award the Contract


Assessment of risk;


Low – (Parapet Replacements) Funding is available from the Block 3 Local Transport Capital Budget 2019/20 underspend. Urban Vision is experienced in undertaking similar refurbishment schemes. The parapets in their current condition are sub-standard. The proposed works would ensure the safety of the public using the carriageway/ subway.


Replacement with galvanised steel parapets would ensure a minimum of 30 years’ service life. Painting of the parapets would introduce a 15 to 20 years repainting cycle



The source of funding is:


The cost of the works will be funded from the approved Highways Block 3 Capital Allocation, for the 2019/20 financial year
