Caerleon Roman Fortress Barracks Phase 2, Site Fencing and Access

Having successfully tendered for this scheme we have been employed by CADW to undertake works around the Roman barracks at Caerleon. Our works comprise of the removal of a timber post and rail fence which is being replaced with timber bollards and the removal of a steel post and wire boundary fence which is to be replaced with steel estate fencing. A new Breedon gravel surfaced access path will be installed into the barracks with the existing path being removed. As the site is archeologically very sensitive we have worked with CADW to find a fencing system which can utilise the holes left by the previous fence thus avoiding further ground disturbance. We have also revised the bollard installation to again utilise holes left by the removal of the timber fence. Before commencing works we will excavate trial holes under the supervision of an archaeologist who will also undertake a watching brief on site as works progress. In addition to the archaeological constraints which prevent the use of any mechanical excavation, the site is to remain open to the general public for the duration of the works and the fence that is being replaced acts as a boundary to a local primary school and so all site operations are having to be carefully programmed.

Parc Nant Y Waun, Brynmawr

This contract follows on from previous contracts that we have undertaken at Parc Nant Y Waun in Brynmawr. These latest works include constructing a stone dust footpath to make up part of the new trim trail, excavation and de-silting of the top lake and construction of a blockstone dam, coupled with the construction of a hard stand area and connecting path to form an education pond dipping area. We will also be installing some blockstone stepping stones and a new outfall pipe with a stone headwall.

Springvale Local Nature Reserve, Cwmbran - Environmental Improvements

This contract has been let by Torfaen County Borough Council to provide improved access into and through the Springvale Local Nature Reserve which runs alongside Greenmeadow Community Farm in Cwmbran. The works primarily involve the installation of a 400 metre long macadam footpath to replace the existing muddy track. The site is also abused by motorcycles and so we are installing kissing gates at each entrance along with infill fencing and blockstone boulders in an attempt to prevent them from gaining access. Oak waymarker signs will also be installed at various locations on the adjoining business park to direct the public into the somewhat hidden reserve.
