REASEHEATH INFRASTRUCTURE, CHESHIRE

McPhillips commenced the construction of the main infrastructure works to the proposed 1000+ unit Kingsbourne development at Reaseheath, Nantwich in July 2017.

The first phase of works consists of 700 metres of spine road and adjacent estate roads to individual parcels of land, for all of the consortium members.

The scheme has a number of civil engineering challenges that include a high capacity pumping station 7 metres deep, with associated storage tanks, and a single span pedestrian bridge. This bridge incorporates drainage outfalls and is to be lifted into place over the River Weaver. Drainage installation within the site has been at depths of up to 5 metres, and cutting edge trench support and de-watering techniques have been used.

Current site conditions have presented the construction team with a number of challenges, including very high water table levels and associated ground conditions. Although close to the market town of Nantwich, the site is in a rural location. Ecological and wildlife constraints include the protection of water voles, badger setts and native trees. Future works will include the construction of new habitats for the wildlife.

Phase 1 works will complete in the third quarter of 2018, and McPhillips will return to site in 2019 to complete the outstanding infrastructure works. A significant £4m diversion of the existing A51, including a number of highway structures, is included in the next phase of works.
