East Riding of Yorkshire Council is the local authority in Yorkshire, with head offices based at County Hall in Beverley. With two schemes at Bridlington and Brough the council wanted to use time lapse to capture the development at both sites.
Bridlington Integrated Transport Plan, Phase 2
The whole scheme is to improve access to the town centre for vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians, and also to improve the pedestrians facilities in the town centre. To do this the new bridge at Beck Hill is to be raised and widen the old Beck Hill to provide a big improvement in the circulatory area for the town centre.
The £13.5m project includes some demolition, property purchase as well as the highways and infrastructure works. Funding came from East Riding of Yorkshire Council (ERYC) and Humber LEP. The design commenced in May 2014 with Amey UK plc the principal designer. The main contractor was PBS (North East) Ltd and the whole project was delivered and managed by ERYC.
Construction began in August 2016 and is scheduled to be completed in Autumn 2018.
Brough Relief Road, Phase 2
This project is designed to relive traffic congestion in the town centre. The £7.5m project, which was funded by a private developer, will also open up the adjacent land for development including housing, commercial and a new school. There is also a new bridge over the rail track to improve access.
The project was also delivered and managed by ERYC with C R Reynolds the main contractors and the principal designer was Pell Frischmann (one of the UK’s leading firms of consulting engineers.)
It was commenced in January 2017 and is expected to be completed in January 2018.
Progress so far
Why did East Riding of Yorkshire Council use time lapse and how was their experience with Time Lapse UK?
We spoke with Brian Phillipson, Assistant Principal Engineer at East Riding of Yorkshire Council.
“The reason we wanted the time lapse was two fold, firstly the broadcast media like time lapse videos as they are interesting and look good. Secondly it is a good tracking tool for us. It’s actually turned out that the record of what was done when has proven far more valuable for us than expected. The stills taken every 20 minutes provide a great record of the work and have even been used to apprehend some vandals who entered the Brid site and graffitied the new bridge abutments and set a fire!”
