Physical works continued on the ‘i-Worx’ site. Site clearance, site levelling, sub base and drainage have all been completed. The link road was completed in August 2018.
The project has encountered delays due to UK Power networks delaying the removal of the overhead power cables which are located through the middle of Bedford Commercial Park. These works were due to commence in June, however, have been put back to September.

Due to this, i-Worx above-ground construction will now commence in October 2018, with completion by end of March 2019.
