Work has started on the site of the new £9.5m Freckleton Street Link Road in Blackburn.
Capita is providing civil engineering services on the project which is the ‘missing link’ in Blackburn’s inner ring road linking Wainwright Bridge (below - designed by Capita and opened in June 2008) with Montague Street.
The project comprises the construction of a dual two-lane ring road with two new major traffic signal controlled junctions and associated landscaping and ecology. It also includes the demolition of a Grade II listed building, demolition of four other buildings, a new bridge crossing, extensive statutory undertakers diversions and the exhumation and re-internment of graves from the former St Peter’s Church graveyard.
The Capita team worked extensively with its strategic partner
Blackburn with Darwen Council in promoting the scheme through an
extensive planning process that included a successful public
inquiry into the compulsory purchase order and side roads order for
the scheme, together with the purchase of property affected by the
Capita Real Estate and Infrastructure work with public and private sector organisations to design, build and optimise their real estate and infrastructure assets. From thought to finish, we apply our combined expertise to achieve more from the entire built environment.
We build competitive advantage through intelligently applied real estate and infrastructure solutions and enhance our clients’ standing in a forever-changing world.
