Throughout the scheme new landscaping and planting features will be created. Advanced ecological mitigation works will include the removal and translocation of hedgerows, tree removal and the advanced planting of hedgerow, woodland and individual trees.
The road has been designed to avoid, minimise and offset impacts to landscape and ecological features where ever possible, and the key steps to safeguard landscape, environmental and ecological features on site and maintain/enhance connectivity to the wider landscape has been taken into consideration.
The following has been achieved:
- All soil arising re-used on site.
- All uprooted hedges translocated within the new link road corridor
- The masonry stones to build culvert locally sourced
