Meet the team this Thursday 24
Thames Water says:
So far this year, our main activity has been creating the foundations for the additional sewage treatment tanks.
This involves hammering over 3,500 concrete piles into the ground. Despite the harsh weather over Christmas, we have already finished installing a quarter of these, and are still on target to finish the first phase in the spring. There will then be a break of about two months in the main piling activities while we work in another part of the site. We will resume the second phase of this work in the summer, which is likely to run into late autumn.
All of the steel piles have been installed, which was the noisier of the two piling activities.
Work has also begun on building a tunnel which will transport sewage entering the works to the new treatment tanks. We are using around 40 ready-made concrete sections that fit together end to end, which is a relatively quick and quiet technique.
All of this work is being carried out behind the western embankment, which helps to reduce the noise and visual impact. In addition, we are continuing to monitor noise and vibration levels, and avoid weekend working.
On Thursday 24 February, from 5pm to 7pm, you can meet members of the project team, view our plans, and provide any feedback at our next informal drop-in session at the RFU (Rugby Football Union). Free parking will be available in the main car park. On arrival
please report to reception at Rugby House Door A, situated in the South Stand.
We will keep you fully updated on our progress. If you have any questions, please call 0845 641 0030, quoting 'Mogden'. Our lines are always open.
