|The most recent works sign|
Work at the junction with Esslemont Road and West Mains Road began on 30th July with an expected duration of seven weeks and I have made several checks on progress. Its latest completion date is the end of this week.
For the record the explanation given for the delay is as follows:
- The work (by the University) within the KB was delayed because of a supply problem and the subsequent late delivery of natural stone materials being used in the foot way entrance construction. This had a knock on effect delaying the junction work because a foot way had to be maintained.
- There was a further two week delay when damage to cable ducts caused by a utility company. The damage was repaired and, I am glad to see, the costs, including costs of the delay, will be recovered from the utility company. This repair work proved a diversion from the progress of the junction upgrade work
