Spitfire Island A452

In 2104 Callan Connect were instructed to carry extensive BT Openreach diversionary works as part of the Spitfire Island/Chester Road Improvement scheme. These works were essential to allow the development of the island as part of major route expansion too junction 5 of the M6.

Works were completed well in advance of the contractual deadline & within the budget restraints set out by our client. This allowed Openreach to carry out their cable diversions earlier than anticipated, allowing other utility contractors to carry out their works an ultimately meaning that the entire scheme of works was completed on time.
