Burn Valley Roundabout

Client: Hartlepool Borough Council

Project Value: £238,546 – Start Date: Oct 2012 Completed: Dec 2012

Brief Description of the Works

The work involved the reconstruction of an irregular shaped roundabout and excavating in a main traffic route with numerous live services and resurfacing the 4 approach roads into the roundabout. Landscaping was not within the contract.

The roundabout was re-centred and rebuilt so that it was actually circular. The road surfaces feeding onto the roundabout were reconstructed and resurfaced in phases with specialist tarmac and pedestrian refuges were enlarged and installed. All traffic management was provided by Tangent Construction who acted as Principal Contractor. Secure barriers were needed to ensure the safety of pedestrians and traffic alike while the works were being carried out.
