Norman Rourke Pryme has been appointed by a consortium of national house builders to procure and manage the new Sunday’s Hill bypass in Hampshire. The consortium, who comprise Bovis Homes, Bloor Homes and Linden Homes, are required to build the new bypass from Pylands Lane to Heath House Lane, Bursledon near the M3 – M27 intersection – in the South of England, as a reinforcement of the local infrastructure related to the consortium’s new development of 1,350 new homes on the site of a former golf course at Boorley.
The new bypass is 1.1 km long with a 20m single-span concrete bridge on green field land which will open up much-needed housing development in the area.
The consortium has appointed Breheny under the NEC3 contract and works have now started on site. The site is ecologically sensitive and a great deal of work has been done to preserve the local flora and fauna. The bridge also allows bats to traverse the valley of their natural habitat whilst avoiding vehicular traffic.
Work is expected to be complete in May 2017
