Sheet piling works near Harvil Road. Duration of works 7th February 2022 – 31st March 2022
Construction of platforms for piling and sheet piling works Last year we began construction of the Colne Valley Viaduct. To build the 45 piers over land and 11 piers over the lakes we have been undertaking a programme of rotary, vibratory and sheet piling to create strong pier foundations and railway embankments at both ends of the viaduct. In February 2022 we will start earthworks and piling to build the permanent structure which will form the south embankment of the viaduct next to Harvil Road, Hillingdon. When the south embankment is complete it will carry train lines to and from the Colne Valley Viaduct and the Copthall Tunnel approach, via a realigned section of Harvil Road. How may this affect you We will be using a crane and piling rig to vibrate and hammer sheet piles into the ground to create retaining walls around the site of the south embankment and ground piers. These works will start from 7 th February and last until late March 2022. We will only pile in core working hours, from 8am to 6pm Mondays to Fridays, and 8am to 1pm on Saturdays. If you live near the works site, it is likely that the piling activity will produce increased noise which you may hear in your property

Duration of works
7th February 2022 – 31st March 2022 8am to 6pm, Mondays to Fridays, 8am to 1pm on Saturdays Work dates may be subject to change. We will do our best to keep residents updated with any changes What to expect Intermittent noise and vibration from works site during core working hours Some other less noisy works will also take place outside of these hours Plant and machinery visible from Harvil Road and Skip Lane What we will do Monitor noisy works and reduce impacts on local residents wherever possible.
