Jump box installation – update

Jun 14, 2021 | Community News, Council News

Due to circumstances beyond the control of both the Council and the contractor, Twisted Metal Art, who was appointed to undertake remedial work and modification to the jump box situated in Millbrook Skate Park, there has unfortunately, be a delay in completing the scheduled work.
The reasons for the initial delays were
  • providing the measurements of the extended ramp and communicating with the contractor
  • the workload of the galvaniser (the only galvaniser in the South West)
  • transportation arrangements to bring the ramp back (special care had to be arranged to ensure it was not damaged in transit).
  • the wet weather conditions.

Following communication with myself and the contractor, Twisted Metal Art, arrangements were made for the ramp to be installed during the May half term..

Unfortunately, on  Friday 28th May I received an email from Mr Mark Stevens, proprietor of Twisted Metal Art, informing me that he had been signed off work due to health reasons.

Communication has been ongoing and I have been advised today that the ramp is likely to be installed towards the middle of next week

I know the return of the ramp has been longer than anticipated but I am sure the wait will be worth it.
Thank you for your patience.
