On 8 November 2021, our surveying team will be installing monitoring studs along The Greenway. This will help our team to monitor ground settlement in the area.
The monitoring studs will be installed on the kerbs along the Greenway. Our surveyors will use a tripod placed on the ground to take measurements and distances and they will be using hand tools so the noise from the activity should be minimal.
Our surveyors will carry out weekly visits after the installation to monitor ground settlement.
We will maintain access to footpaths and driveways for the duration of these works.
Duration of works Installation on 8 November from 9am to 5pm Weekly monitoring visits until 30 June 2022
What to expect Two operatives in the work area, as well as handheld equipment and tripods Weekly visits after the installation
What we will do Maintain access to your property at all times

Our Autumn newsletter is now out for delivery and will hopefully soon be dropping through Association members’ letterboxes
Our stewards will also be doing their best to collect subs from you so, if you find an envelope along with the newsletter we would be very grateful if you could return it with the money and noting your name and address to the road steward named on the envelope.
We are still desperately short of people to deliver the newsletter so there will be copies in several locations in the village including Maison du Soleil and the Library.

What we are doing From 25 October 2021, we will start excavation works to prepare the base of the railway tunnels in the area shown on the map . We will be excavating the earth to prepare the area for the launch of the Tunnel Boring Machines and the creation of the portal area. The earth excavated from this area will be stored temporarily at the golf course driving range. This stockpiled earth will then be used to landscape the area around the tunnels and the tunnel entrances once the construction works have been completed.
Excavation of area and placement on temporary storage area • These works will take place in two shifts. This activity is needed to prepare the area for the concrete pours before the cold weather.
Continuous cement pour • Two periods of fifty hours continuous pour of concrete is required to build two base slabs for the portal structure. The pour has to be continuous so that there is no loss to the structural integrity of the building.
We will: • Continue to monitor sound levels both inside and outside our site compound • Carry out attended monitoring for the first two weeks to ensure noise and vibration levels are within our required limits • Steel fixing works will only be done at the very bottom of the excavation at 11 meters below ground level • Where possible, acoustic covers and blankets will be used • Cutting and welding will only be carried out during the day (8am to 6pm) • Dust mist cannons will surround the working areas • Lighting will face away from residential properties.
We would like to apologise in advance for any disruption or inconvenience this may cause. Every effort is being taken to ensure that these works are carried out in the least impactful way. We will ensure that disruption is kept to a minimum.
