1. Further to the previous update regarding the piling works ongoing at Harvil Road
Further to the previous updates provided earlier this year, you will be aware that our contractors SCS Railways have undertaken a number of trials and changed the methodology for the piling works being undertaken at Harvil Road. We wanted to provide you with an update regarding this work. During the last few weeks, we have been able to progress with a number of piles using a combination of quieter methods. We are now concentrating on getting the piles that we were previously installing using the impact piling method earlier in the year driven to depth. In conjunction with the local stakeholders and the Local Authority, we have agreed a program to continue with the remailing sheet piles in a carefully controlled way. This will commence today, 3 March 2021 and you may notice some shorter periods of noisier works between certain hours. These times have been chosen to minimise the disruption to both local stakeholders and community. These will be late morning, Lunchtime and late afternoon. We are aiming to have this work completed within the next two weeks

2. Notice of surveyor visits between South Ruislip and West Ruislip
We wrote to you in February to tell you about surveyor visits that would take place on 10 March and 24 March 2021.We have rearranged these dates and the surveys will now take place on Saturday 13 March and Sunday 14 March 2021. Our surveying team will be visiting locations between South Ruislip and West Ruislip to carry out surveys on and near the railway tracks. The surveys will be carried out during a track possession while trains are not running between 7am to 7pm on the above dates. Our surveyors will use a tripod on the ground to measure angles and distances and will be using hand tools so the noise from the activity will be minimal.
