Revised timetable for energy pipe works


The project re-commenced on time in January, but the whole timetable has now been delayed by three factors:

  1. Installing the storm drain and sewer for the Winvic development on Latimer Road
  2. Unforeseen concrete and Utilities Congestion in All Saints Road and Lime Walk
  3. County Council Access to Headington work at Roosevelt Drive/Old Road currently over-running by two weeks.

Vital Energi apologises for any inconvenience that these delays may cause and will do everything they can to make up lost time if at all possible and to assist residents and stakeholders at all times. There is no provision for night or weekend work to make up lost time as this would require a variation to the planning consent, which would take weeks to come through, delaying the process still further.

The new Timetable is as follows, but please note that it could change again depending on the concrete/utilities under the roads, the weather, if the dig teams can make up lost time or if Vital is delayed getting onto London Rd, Old Rd by the Access to Headington work at Roosevelt Drive.
