Ebley Road
During week commencing 25 November 2019, we will begin to construct the pit adjacent to 22 & 23 Renard Rise and this should take approximately one week to complete. The sound proof panels will be placed on the fencing. We plan to commence the tunnelling under the railway line during week commencing 2 December and take two weeks to complete. When we are tunnelling directly under the railway tracks, we will be carrying out 24-hour working, and this will be done between 9 -11 December 2019. There may be additional noise and lighting during this night working and we apologise for any inconvenience caused. The tunnel machine will start on the Renard Rise side.

Playground area
We plan to remove the playground in equipment during week commencing 14 October 2019. Following this we will start the preparation works in the green open space opposite properties 11 to 13 and 19 to 23 Renard Rise. We will create an access off Ebley Road and securely fence the working area. We will then remove the topsoil and store it on site. All equipment and materials will be delivered to the site from Ebley Road and we will have temporary traffic lights in place during these deliveries. Part of the scheme involves constructing the new water main under the railway line and this will be done using a tunnelling technique. In early November we will start the construction of the pits for the tunnel machine and these should take approximately four weeks to construct. We plan to commence the tunnelling under the railway line in early December and take approximately 10 days to complete.

Work in Progress

All the pipe has been laid and we are carrying out the final parts of reinstating the land. The new playground equipment is due to be installed in June 2020 and the area will be ready for July 2020.
