Aylesham Village expansion - phase 2
Gallagher Ltd was awarded the contract for Stage 2 of the Aylesham Village expansion. Stage 2 SIC is a continuation of the Stage 1 works that we undertook in 2015. Despite this, the Stage 2 works were put out to tender, with the award criteria based on a marking scheme for financial evaluation, programme, quality submission and post tender interview. Our score against this criteria was 84%, a six point improvement on our score for the award of the Stage 1 contract.
Works involved new roads and drainage to provide better links between the village centre and mainline rail station, an enlarged and improved station car park and a new car park in the village centre servicing the existing medial centre. In addition, Gallagher undertook Section 278 improvements to the existing highways in Aylesham Village, involving a significant interface with the public and local residents.
There was a significant amount of work to install a pumping station, culvert storage and rising main to service the ongoing development. There were also improvements made to two off site junctions, including the installation of new traffic lights to and street lighting to a major junction.
Gallagher Aggregates Ltd supplied aggregates.
