Waterman Appointed to help deliver New Link Road in Ashbourne
We are delighted to have been appointed by Derbyshire County Council to provide engineering and environmental consultancy services on the new Ashbourne Airfield Link Road Project.
Derbyshire County Council, in partnership with Derbyshire Dales District Council and land owner FW Harrison (Commercials) Limited, are proposing a new link road with a signalised junction between the existing Airfield Industrial Estate in Ashbourne and the main A52.
The former airfield site is located 13 miles west of Derby on the southern boundary of the Peak District and its western section has been developed as a large industrial area. The creation of the new link road is intended to improve accessibility to the existing Airfield Industrial Estate, improve traffic flow through Ashbourne Town Centre and act as a catalyst for hundreds of new jobs. The link road will also service a further 8 hectares of land to the south which has outline planning permission for 367 new homes, employment space and commercial and community facilities.
Our team will provide the detailed design of highways and drainage, ecology services and statutory undertakers diversions and new supply.
Ruth Jeffs, Waterman’s Regional Operations Director for the Midlands commented; “We are delighted to have been appointed to this strategic project that will help deliver new homes and employment opportunities to the local community. We look forward to working closely with the Client and Landowner to deliver this exciting project.”
