Barratt Homes contracted us at the beginning of 2018 to build infrastructure and provide groundworks for a major development of 2,450 homes over three villages in Kingsbrook, Aylesbury Vale. In partnership with RSPB, Barratt David Wilson aim to pioneer the concept of nature-friendly housing developments.
We started work on the site in May 2018, finishing a part-installed single carriageway, Stock Lake Link Road. Under the strategic planning, the road will improve the already challenging traffic conditions through Aylesbury town, whilst providing an important transport link for the residents of the new development.
The next phase of the transport infrastructure works begun on the 1st of July of 2019. This was to deliver the complete Eastern Link Road, connecting the development to the A418, a major thoroughfare from Milton Keynes. A signalised junction is to be installed off of the new carriageway to enable the new connection to the A418. An estate road network will be built to support bus links and other traffic throughout the development.
On 6th of January 2019, we also commenced the groundworks to Village 3, The Canal Quarter. As well as the standard foundations, private drainage, floor slabs and external works, we also completed the strategic private road and sewer network.
