Heatpipe work about to re-start

Work in the public realm on the heatpipe project, or hospital energy project to give it its proper name, is about to start again. It’s been confirmed that work on the JR Temporary Car Park will begin on 14 November and work on the residential roads on 28 November. In a letter distributed to Highfield residents the Trust says:

[Work will] begin on 28th November 2016 and run until 13th April 2017 in Highfield and finish 19th May on Churchill Drive. Vital Energi is now using three dig teams, which has halved the original schedule. Vital Energi and Oxford University Hospitals (OUH) are also working very closely with Access to Headington and the Winvic developers to ensure that all our works are coordinated. On 28th November, work will commence at two locations: All Saints Road junction with Barrington Close onto Lime Walk (where there will be temporary three-way traffic lights) and from Latimer Road down to the junction with Latimer Grange.

You can read the letter to residents here. It will be distributed more widely later this month.
