Ahead of the main station construction works starting at Bedlington, a main compound is being installed at Melrose Villas Car Park to facilitate the construction of the Bedlington station as part of the Northumberland Line Project.
The main compound (please see image above for exact location marked in red) will be installed from Monday 25th September 2023. Work to install the main site compound will take place between 8:00am and 18:00pm on Monday to Friday, with no expected weekend work.
During this period, you can expect multiple deliveries made to the site compound by Heavy Good Vehicles (HGV's). There will be a suspension period for HGV traffic between the hours of 8am – 9am and 3pm – 4pm to accommodate the school drop off and pick up hours. All efforts will be made to ensure the roads are kept clean with regular road sweeps.
All staff undertaking the works will be readily identifiable as they will be wearing orange hi-visibility jackets and trousers. We will make every effort to reduce dust, noise, and vibration throughout, and all our contractors will endeavour to reduce noise as much as possible.
