What are we doing now?

Emerging preferred option

We have assessed four route lengths to see which one is best.

To ensure the project benefits would meet the needs of the area, we ranked our considerations in an order of importance.

We also looked closely at areas where ground conditions were an issue and adjusted routes to reduce the impact on the environment and cost.  

Watch the video for more information on how we assessed the emerging preferred route.
