COVID-19 update: 23 October 2020

Excavation work in the basement level will be completed next week.

The third major concrete pour needed for the completion of the basement floor slab will take place on a day between Wednesday 28 October and Friday 30 October.  We will advise next week of the exact day and timings once these are confirmed with our contractor.

Work will start at 7:30 am, but due to the complexity of concrete pouring, it is anticipated that we will complete the pour and close the site by 12 midnight. We apologise for any inconvenience this causes you, and Manchester City Council is aware of the need to work beyond 6pm in this circumstance.

The remaining two pours will take place over separate days between now and December. We will inform you via an interim update of any changes to the planned works.

The construction of the basement walls will continue after the completion of the basement floor slab. The wall construction is a daily set of ongoing works. The concrete pours for these walls are being undertaken during the normal working hours as set out in the approved construction environment management plan.

Working hours remain 8am to 6pm for standard construction works.

Road cleaning will continue from the site via the Wilmslow Road vehicle exit gate. The regularity of the road cleaning will change depending on the site activities.
