Keynsham Recycling Hub, Bath

Welcome to our webpage which will keep you up to date with progress on the Keynsham Recycling Hub project. Farrans Construction is delighted to have been appointed by Bath & North East Somerset Council as the main contractor on this state-of-the-art project.

Client
Bath & North East Somerset Council

Work is progressing on the development of a modern recycling centre, a reuse shop for people to donate items for reuse and resale, an MOT centre and an education centre, which is due for completion in late 2023.

In line with the council’s Climate and Ecological Emergency declarations and policy aims, the Keynsham Recycling Hub project will integrate many sustainability measures including on-site renewable energy generation. Farrans bring a strong organisational approach to responsibly managing our environmental footprint across site operations and value chain. This project will see the delivery of new innovative methods of sustainable construction and management throughout the works.

Delivering a Lasting Legacy

Farrans is also committed to the delivery of an impactful programme of Social Value and Community Engagement alongside the construction works. We believe it is important to develop and support a skilled workforce on site, and build the skills capacity of the construction sector of the future leaving a lasting legacy in the heart of the communities that we work in.

We have developed a programme of activities that propose working with local partners in Keynsham and the wider B&NES region to provide employment and training opportunities, engage in educational and community initiatives and support the local economy.

If you are a local group, school or business who would like to get involved, please get in touch via the project helpline or email.

Ongoing Roadworks

As part of the works a new entrance to the hub will be created on World’s End Lane which will involve the widening and upgrading of the current laneway. These works are scheduled to take place from mid June and run until Autumn 2022. Throughout this period, on occasion, there will be lane changes, partial closures and full closures on Pixash Lane from Bath Road to Ashmead Road and also on World’s End Lane. Advance warning signage, and traffic signalling when required, will be in place to ensure traffic can still access properties in the area. It is the intention that the majority of the closures will take place outside of normal business hours.

As part of the wider project a range of activities are required by utility companies to provide power, water and other services to the future buildings at the hub. The utility companies are also using this opportunity to carry out improvements to existing infrastructure to ensure the service for the wider area is sufficient. The utility work is being co-ordinated across the different providers and along with the carriageway work to ensure the least amount of disruption.
