Carillion collapse has effects close to home

The Carillion site at Westerleigh Road near Chedworth

The collapse of the massive company Carillion is having an effect on a wide range of local facilities and projects. These range from services they run at Southmead Hospital for North Bristol NHS Trust to local construction projects like the Carillion site at Westerleigh Road, Yate near Chedworth - the project to stabilise the bankment on the railway line that runs from Bristol Parkway north towards Yate and Gloucester.

All of the hospital facilities are open as normal and patient appointments are not affected, but the effect on the target date for the rail embankment works is not yet known.

As far as we know the electrification of the main GWR line is not affected, as this is being run by another main contractor.

Update 19/01/2018 - Regarding Westerleigh Rd, Network Rail say: "As far as we’ve been told, Carillion’s work for Network Rail continues for the time being as we work with the official receiver to ensure the continuity of its project work. Our aim is to ensure, as far as possible, that this news won’t impact our projects"
