Contractors building a road to connect two Aylesbury housing estates have shown off their handiwork on Twitter as part of a government campaign to highlight infrastructure projects across the country.
The Building Britain campaign invited construction industry members to show off their progress on Twitter by using the hashtag #buildingbritain.
The £8 million Western Link road will connect new community Berryfields on the outskirts of Aylesbury with Buckingham Park, on the north-western edge of the town.
Kier Infrastructure, which is working on the new 2.2 kilometre road, took a photo of progress so far and posted it on the social media website.
Kier Infrastructure project manager Nick Dobbie said: “Construction of the link road is going very well. We are now at the stage where we are beginning to lay the surfacing and tidy the grass verges ahead of the road opening.
“The Berryfields link road is one of many vital infrastructure schemes being constructed across the country and we wanted to get involved with the Building Britain campaign to highlight this essential project.”
Work began on the link road in June last year and it’s set to open this summer. The project has been funded completely by the Berryfields Consortium of developers, which includes Taylor Wimpey South Midlands, Martin Grant Homes, Kier Homes and Banner Homes.
Consortium project manager Stuart Grant said: “The Western Link Road is a vital infrastructure project for our new community at Berryfields and we are looking forward to the opening of the road this summer.”
The Berryfields estate already has two state-of-the-art schools, The Aylesbury Vale Academy and Berryfields Primary School, which opened last year and there are also plans for a second primary school.
