Kingsway Urban Village
Client : QUVL Consortium
Value : €6.9m
John Sisk & Son carried out the major infrastructural works, associated services and drainage to support the planned 2500 homes at this former RAF station at Quedgeley, Gloucestershire, now known as Kingsway Urban Village.
Sisk provided the infrastructure necessary to support the anticipated development of more than 3000 homes over a ten year period by a strong group of developers. The project is now described as “one of the greatest successes in consortium development in the UK”
The works included the provision of over 2 km of new estate roads within the attractive Urban Village development, footpaths, cycle ways, street furniture and services – including over 3 km of storm and foul water drainage.
A new traffic controlled access was constructed on the A38. In addition 500 m of this existing dual carriageway was relaid and a 7 m high bund was constructed along its length to provide noise protection for residents.
Other environmental aspects of the scheme included protection measures for great crested newts, badgers, bats and bee orchids.
