Works Commence At Aqua Drive, Hampton

GKL Building & Civil Engineering are pleased to announce that works have officially commenced to the first section of primary S278 and S38 infrastructure into the new Hampton Waters development at Hampton situated to the south of Peterborough in Cambridgeshire. This exciting development, valued at £1.6million has an estimated completion date at the end of July 2017 and is set to significantly enhance the Hampton area.

The new road will be known as Aqua Drive and will deliver 450 metres of new single lane carriageway along with a new traffic signal controlled junction at the existing Eagle Way/A15 junction. The innovative design of the new carriageway sees the virtual elimination of conventional storm water drainage through trapped road gullies and instead utilizes a series of swales which will drain to a level controlled attenuation lake. This design commissioned by O&H Hampton will see the delivery of the next generation of sustainable urban drainage design road infrastructure that will hopefully become commonplace in UK road construction moving forward.

With over 100 years of collective experience, GKL Group take immense pride in enhancing local areas in sought after locations to offer an exceptional environment to local communities they construct and develop in.

James Brackenbury, Director of GKL Group explains...

‘Our ‘why’ at GKL is a very simple one – to do everything we can to assist in addressing our nation’s housing crisis.

By delivering this key piece of primary infrastructure into a brownfield site will see this open up the area for 1,000’s of new homes over the coming years.

Progress on the works to date has been excellent and whilst we appreciate that there will be some disruption in the very short term whilst the A15 junction is reconfigured we hope that everyone will appreciate that the long-term benefits to the area will far outweigh the few months of road works.’
