The Franciscan Way Subway was closed in 2013 and thus rendering the underpass as being unnecessary. The subway itself has been filled in but  the remaining part of this major project, was the ramp which also regularly flooded.

Working on behalf of Kier and Suffolk Highways we filled this ramp area with C4 road foam concrete, pumped in by a 32 metre pump from Eastern Concrete. The area was then topsoiled and turfed and recently opened to the public.
