The main focus of the enabling works re-engineered farmland which sloped 35 metres from east to west, creating two prime development plateaus.
An access road into the site from the A426 was then constructed for adoption by Warwickshire County Council, linking Rugby Gateway to an excellent transport network with junction 1 of the M6 motorway immediately adjacent to the distribution centre and Daventry International Rail Freight Terminal only seven miles away.
The enabling works contract was secured in October 2013 and work commenced immediately to create two plateaus on the greenfield site.
On securing a contract for Phase 2 in April 2014, we started work on creating improved access to the site for vehicles and pedestrians from the A426. This incorporated a Section 278 Works highway scheme on the A426 and a Section 38 Agreement for adoption by Warwickshire County Council.
Construction of 260m of dual carriageway led to a roundabout, off which 670m of single carriageway was built to service plots on the two plateaus. This also involved the laying of statutory authority services to serve the whole development.
