Monmouth Town Centre Improvements

Griffiths successfully completed the reconstruction of footways and carriageways at Monnow Street, Agincourt Square, Agincourt Street and Prior Street, in the historic town of Monmouth in the County of Monmouthshire.

Avoiding disruption was essential to the successful delivery of the project. Key to this success was good communication with Client, public and stakeholders. The area is not pedestrianized, therefore good traffic and pedestrian management was paramount, with a dedicated plant route for import and export of materials, measures in place to minimize noise and dust suppression during periods of excavation while working outside of shops.

The site team worked closely with the client and public liaison officer to identify potential problems with any key dates by planning together the phasing of works, instigating any necessary road closures or diversions and coordinating access for deliveries to shops.

Night working enabled works affecting shop doorways, access areas or road closures to be carried out with minimum disruption.
Excavated concrete products were removed to an off-site recycling facility for crushing, grading and recycled sub-base reused.

The installation of a new discrete slot drainage system has far less visual impact than traditional gully gratings and grid systems along with the construction of new pavements and highways and the installation of natural stone street furniture. Our highly trained, dedicated team were able to use their experience to locate existing services, which is one of the main challenges working in town centreswhere often records are old and out of date.

Working areas were constrained to 50m in length and are kept secure with suitable task fencing. Access for visually impaired persons is maintained and further enhanced by workforce briefings empowering assistance where necessary.
