The visit was to provide the Leader with an opportunity to see the progress on site and how the enabling work on the project has continued during the COVID-19 lockdown.

John F Hunt has been able to maintain their operations due to robust site management and safe working procedures, put in place through collaboration with contractors and the Westminster City Council development team.

The Leader of the City Council attended one of the daily briefings with the site team and their senior management, conducted by Mike Weller, John F Hunt’s Project Manager for Ebury Bridge; before being given a short tour of the site and a brief explanation of work being carried out.

Cllr Rachael Robathan, leader of Westminster City Council, said: “I want the Ebury Bridge renewal scheme to set the standard for estate regeneration. The much-needed new homes taking shape here will contribute to our target of 1,850 homes over the next three years, and it’s great that construction is on track despite the challenges faced due to the Covid-19 pandemic.”

The Ebury Bridge Estate Project continues, on schedule, eventually providing over 750 new homes for the community.
