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.

Heavy loads arriving at West Ruislip in March

From HS2:

As part of the substation installation, we will have 2no. Electrical Voltage Transformers delivered to our site. These transformers will change the incoming voltage from 33kV down to 11kV so that we can eventually power the Tunnel Boring Machines at their required voltages.

Our transformers will be delivered at the weekend as they are coming directly from their delivery port, as they have been shipped from overseas. They are delivered through the night due to the load and will arrive at the West Ruislip portal in the morning in each instance. The works to install these transformers will be carried out across the following weekends:

Transformer 1 delivery: Saturday 13th March and Sunday 14th March 2021

Transformer 2 delivery: Saturday 27th March and Sunday 28th March 2021

At present, these dates are planned with our suppliers, however should there be any changes to the delivery due to freight passing the UK border we will update all residents and businesses accordingly.
