Two existing bridges will be demolished

one redundant over WCML a
nd one over Stoney
Road which will be realigned with a further temporary diversion.

Two new culverts will be constructed to link with existing ones and a swale (large ditch) will
be created to compensate for loss of floodplain.

The main construction acces
s will be the existing large access into Judkins Quarry leading
to the former block works site which will become the main compound for the works. The
compound will cover 5.5 hectares and is already largely hard surfaced. A small compound
will also be creat
ed near Canal Farm for the extension of the bridge in that area. Both
compounds will be enclosed with 1.8m galvanised palisade fencing.

A new construction road will be created from the bridge in Judkins over Coventry Canal
(which will need to be strength
ened) to the new haul road adjacent the new line. The
construction road will use the line of the disused railway which runs through Judkins. This
has already been used for previous works to the WCML

Stoney Road will only be used for limited access as will

the existing access road to Network
Rail’s depot off Midland Road (adjacent ABS skips).

4. Consultations carried out

Network Rail has done a significant amount of consultation prior to submitting the draft

In May 2008 they sent letters to approximately 400 houses nearest the site and potential
access points informing residents of the proposal. They again sent letters in July 2008
informing people of a public exhibition at which their officers would be av
ailable to answer
questions and give advice. This was held on 30

July 2008 at Hatters Space Community
Centre between 12.00 to 20.00. About 30 people attended.

Press releases also went out in May and July 2008 and a full page advert was placed for the
ublic exhibition. Radio interviews were given. Flyers and posters were also used and
feedback cards issued.

Only 2 comment cards were received covering:

Overall during the construction period the number of lorries would represent a 50%
increase in number of lorries along Mancetter Road and Tuttle Hill over a 12 hour
period but in terms of total traffic on those roads it will represent only a 4% incr
This still represents one arrival and departure every 8 minutes. This is a worst case
scenario as it is based on a 3 month timetable for the embankment but this could be
longer so lorries could be spread over longer period.

Construction activities

will be undertaken during normal working hours per day and
within a phased programme of work. The assessment carried out on air quality, noise
and disturbance does not show a significant impact from the increased lorry
movements there may well be a percei
ved problem but assessment does not show
one in reality.

Wheel washing facility will be employed for HGVs leaving the site and the off highway
haul road will be damped down in dry conditions.

Once the scheme is completed the only traffic anticipated woul
d be the occasional
maintenance traffic and the impact of that would be negligible.

The mitigation measures and the requirements for good working practises will be built into
contractual obligations. Network Rail has prepared a specific document called ‘


Environment’ (CPE). This is now in its 5

revision and contains a
controlled source of mandatory environmental clauses, which sets out minimum
requirements for every contract and specific requirements for particular p
rojects. This was
used successfully in the previous Nuneaton projects and elsewhere in the WCML
enhancement. This reduces the need for extensive planning conditions for the deemed
permission contained in any approved order.

7. Suggested Planning Condition


The development shall be commenced before the expiration of five years from the
date the Order comes into force


The development shall be constructed in accordance with Network Rail’s Contracts

8. Commentary

This is a significant proposal in terms of its scale and in its importance to national objectives.

National Planning Guidance clearly gives support to this type of proposal, which will help
improve the freight rai
l route from Felixstowe to the Midlands and North with a better
connection into the WCML at Nuneaton and enabling reduced traffic having to go via
London. This will not only provide a more direct and sustainable route, but relieves the
congested and restri
cted capacity of the capital thus enabling improved passenger services.
This in turn allows for more division of traffic from road to rail. This is clearly in line with
European and national sustainable development objectives and provides extremely strong
planning justification for the proposal.

Locally the removal of the conflict of some freight trains having to go through Nuneaton
Station to join the WCML should of significant benefit because the current situation must
impede the efficiency and capacity
of the passenger services. Although Network Rail are not
responsible for the level and type of services running on their lines this proposal clearly
provides the opportunity for improved passenger services. This factor also provides support
for the proposa

However the proposal should be considered against the development plan, which consists
of the West Midlands Regional Spatial Strategy (RSS) 2004 and the Borough Local Plan
2006. The RSS policies do support this type of improvement in the rail network.
Borough Local Plan policies however do provide some issues

Taking policies Emp2 and Emp14 as set out in Section 5 above the use of 5.5 hectares of
land allocated for industrial development, as a temporary compound along with the
temporary construction

road would prejudice a comprehensive employment scheme for
Judkins site. The additional traffic arising from this proposal using the Judkins entrance will
also inhibit a comprehensive scheme. However Emp2 envisages a Development Brief being
prepared first
. Given there is not one at present and also given the economic climate
redevelopment is not likely to take place in the short term and may await further
development of the Core Strategy. So in practise this proposal is not likely to materially
affect the
timing of implementing the local plan employment allocation providing it keeps to
its intended programme.

Env2 relates to the Area of Restraint which much of the land required for the new line is
within the area north of the disused railway line (to be us
ed as the construction road) and up
to the Borough boundary. The new line will be predominately on a fairly high embankment
so it is going to adversely affect the open character and appearance of the area. It can
therefore be considered contrary to Env2. T
here are two mitigating factors

one is that over
time with a good environmental planning scheme it could be successfully integrated into the
countryside (as have a number of disused lines in the Borough) and secondly it will be seen
along side the existin
g rail infrastructure in the area with its overhead lines and structures.

There is no alternative to the proposal, it is not like a housing or other development which
could go on another piece of land it has to be sited in the position shown to get access

the WCML. However Network Rail did consider alternative construction arrangements but
those appear to be more disruptive, costly and involve more lorries. So current proposal
does appear to be the best solution.

Environmental impacts have been properly considered in the Environmental Statement.
Environmental Health Officers are looking at the various aspects of that in terms of noise
and pollution and a verbal update will be given at the meeting.


will be some impact on individual properties particularly Lingfield Farm and Canal
Farm. Network Rail will work with the occupants to ensure impacts are controlled in terms of
duration and impact. The main general impact appears to be the significant incr
ease in lorry
movements using Mancetter Road and Tuttle Hill. Although the Environmental Statement
does not show a significant environmental consequence of that increase it will still have its
impact on the character and nature of traffic on those roads. B
ut that is only for a period of
just over a year.

Consultation with nearby residents was ongoing at the time of preparing this report so any
comments received will be added to an addendum sheet or if necessary reported verbally.

Much of the mitigation an
d controls required are covered in Network Rail’s ‘Contract

Environment’ which any successful contractor(s) will have to comply with.
