Broad Meadow Access Road

Mossvale were appointed to design and construct a new access road from the main A51  trunk road into a nature reserve/meadow on the flood plain between the River Tame and River Anker.  

We were also responsible for the discharge of planning conditions and land drainage consent prior to commencing on this environmentally sensitive area due to part of the meadow being home to  protected wild flowers and the works were designed and planned around these restrictions.

A new bell mouth opening was constructed across the pavement area and grass verge including the installation of a gate into the meadow onto a new 150 metre road constructed from grass crete road paving.  Specialist traffic management was undertaken to  ensure the works were carried out safely on this busy main road.

The project also included the careful removal of redundant cast iron pipework crossing the meadow at a length of over 500 metres which needed to be removed to allow future mowing of the meadow.  The project was delivered on time and had to be constructed in the winter months due to environmental constraints requiring specialist tracked machinery utilised to mitigate disturbance to the ground / soil conditions.

The project was partially grant funded and Tamworth Borough Council had a finite budge which Mossvale and the Design Team work closely together to ensure that this was not exceeded.
