Oakwood Road – Footpath Update

Oakwood Road – Footpath Update

As discussed at the Windlesham Matters meeting an update was due and I have now received an update from SCC Highways, summarised below:

Tenders have been received from a number of companies and as part of the tender the assumption was made that the waste material would be inert as previous drill hole tests had indicated this.

To confirm this during the tender process a Waste Acceptance Criteria test was undertaken, which unfortunately has highlighted a presence of asbestos.

This will substantially increase the costs and further work needs to be undertaken before work can begin so unfortunately the contract will not have a start date until at least later this year, early next year.

SCC Highways will keep us informed.
