The primary objective of this project was to create a high-quality focal point for Bridlington by the use of high-quality paving materials and landscaping.
Stage 1 required changes to Station Approach and Bridlington Station car park (the Station Plaza), together with a new road link across the disused railway sidings to the Tesco access road. A new through road from Quay Road to Hilderthorpe Road also needed to be created to reduce the risk of traffic exiting and queuing next to the level crossing on Quay Road.
The railway station car park and adjacent Tesco store had to remain operational and accessible to the public, Network Rail, Tesco staff and vehicles (e.g. taxis). Early and continuous engagement with Tesco, Network Rail and other nearby businesses played a crucial part in minimising disruption.
Our works created a predominantly one-way traffic flow and ultimately reduced the traffic movements at the Station Road/Quay Road junction. This meant that we delivered this objective successfully on time and within budget.
SCOPE OF WORKS
By working closely with the client, we were able to source an alternative supplier of high-quality granite materials from the same quarries. By changing the supplier to BBS Ltd, rather than using the nominated supplier, we were able to make a saving of £50,000 for the client.
