We need to use Factory Lane to access T-pylon construction areas and for the removal of WPD’s pylons. The route was designated in agreement with the local authority and forms part of our planning consent.
As Factory Lane is narrow, we need to build passing places and control vehicle movements along the road.
We’ve repainted yellow lines to prevent vehicles waiting along the north boundary of the lane and we’re creating a vehicle holding area and installing beacons to control traffic flow.
All our vehicles will be restricted to a 5mph limit along Factory Lane. To safeguard residents of Riverview Farm, we’ve applied for planning permission to build a diversion, and we’ll install gates and have banksmen to see vehicles through safely.

We know this work will cause disruption and we’re sorry for any inconvenience. We’re working with Balfour Beatty to get this work completed as quickly as possible.
When we have finished all work in the area, we will remove the accesses and haul road.
