(Posted on 21/05/19)

Close Lane, AlsagerUCML were appointed for their services regarding a residential development off Close Lane in Alsager. The new housing scheme is built on former farm land and is aptly named ‘The Stables’. UCML were asked to coordinate all four phases of the development. The development is currently in its fourth phase, however during the third phase UCML discovered that a 33kv overhead electricity cable ran directly through the proposed site location. Work involved diverting the overhead cable to another pole location which through third party land. UCML had to coordinate wayleaves and easements with the third party to enable the works to progress in a timely manner and minimise any delays. UCML coordinated the diversion on behalf of the client and the cable was diverted safely. UCML also coordinated and managed the new utility connections of electricity, gas, water and telecoms to the site.
