SE2436 : Excavations, Kirkstall Forge

taken 1 year ago, near to Horsforth, Leeds, Great Britain

Excavations, Kirkstall Forge
Excavations, Kirkstall Forge
Parts of the ground have been excavated, presumably to remove contaminations resulting from previous use as an industrial site.
A large tarmac roundabout has been constructed, but it doesn't appear to connect to the roads. I suppose that its purpose will become clear later.
Kirkstall Forge development :: SE2536
The site at Kirkstall Forge is being redeveloped to provide commercial and residential buildings and a new railway station. The former factory buildings were cleared several years previously, and development was delayed by the recession. The railway station has been built during 2015, and will open by Easter 2016 (having suffered several unexplained delays), and construction of the first commercial building is planned for 2016. A new access road has been built to the station from Abbey Road near the junction with Hawksworth Road.
