Piling work on Gipsy Patch Lane

Work is now well underway around the railway bridge on Gipsy Patch Lane in preparation for its replacement next year.

As part of the preparation work for the new railway bridge piling is needed to construct its foundations. Piling is the process of driving a foundation into the ground to give extra support to the structure on top.

The piling work is due to start the week commencing Monday 14 October and will be carried out over a period of approximately three months. The majority of the piling will take place during the daytime between the hours of 7.30am and 6pm, Monday to Friday. It is not expected that piling will be carried out every day during this time.

Due to the sensitive nature of the work carried out by businesses close to the railway bridge some of the piling will have to be done overnight or during weekends. It is expected that overnight work will be required from mid-October to early-December for approximately 18 nights, on the non-residential side of the bridge only. Overnight work will be carried out between the hours of 6pm and 3am.

These dates are subject to change. Noise and vibration will be monitored throughout the work and we will make adjustments if necessary. We will keep you updated throughout the piling work and notify you of any changes to the planned work.

If you have any questions regarding the piling work we will be hosting a drop-in session:

Tuesday 8 October 4pm to 7pm
Little Stoke Primary School, Little Stoke Lane, BS34 6HY

Everyone is welcome to attend, there is no need to book.
