After continued disruption on the entrance road and pathway to Keys Park, officials from Hednesford Town Football Club have this week met with groundwork contractors in order to rectify supporters’ concerns.
On Tuesday, 13 November, the contractors, McPhillips, were able to make considerable progress with the new access road and footpath and, as a result, the old access road which has been suffering from flooding has now been closed.
We can also confirm that the new pedestrian ‘safe walkway’ that has been put into place should not be affected by weather and cars will no longer have to negotiate the flooded part of the old access road.
Officials from the club held a successful meeting with the new McPhillips Site Manager on Wednesday, 14 November, and have asked him to respond on the various questions that were previously addressed to the main contractors, Taylor Wimpey. We are currently waiting for feedback on these questions and when they arrive we shall ensure that all supporters are advised of the scheduled timetable for improvements.
At present, there is an open trench across part of the car park which is to enable the new mains water and natural gas services to be brought right up to the property, we are advised that this should be completed and back filled by this weekend but certainly well before our next scheduled match on Saturday 24th November when Mickleover Sports visit us.
We thank supporters for their patience with these works and we will aim to bring you a further update as soon as possible.
