Jones Bros starts work on Ruthin footpath for new school9th May 2017

Jones Bros Civil Engineering has started work on a key footpath for pupils at a new Ruthin school site.

The civil engineering firm will improve the existing 150m path, which runs between Greenfield Road and Lôn Parcwr in the town.

The path will be used by pupils attending the £10.5m shared school site, which is scheduled to open in 2018.

Pupils from Rhos Street School and Ysgol Pen Barras will move to new buildings on the site on Glasdir Farm.

The work is being carried out on behalf of client Denbighshire County Council.

Regional manager for north Wales and the north west Hefin Lloyd-Davies said: “The project is expected to take six weeks.

“Our work involves kerbing and surfacing the existing stone track. We will also remove steps and install an access ramp, together with precast concrete retaining wall and drainage improvements. We are using our in-house surfacing team.

“The upgrades to the path will improve safety for pupils and parents using the route when the new school site opens.”

The works will be completed by the middle of June.

Jones Bros has an in-house surfacing division with considerable experience in planning and carrying out surfacing works.

Founded in the 1950s and employing almost 350 people, Jones Bros has grown rapidly in the last decade. It is currently working on contracts in various sectors including the construction of waste management facilities, highways, flood and marine defence and renewable energy projects around the UK.
