Statutory services install progress
You may have seen us working in the streets around the project, installing the new statutory services for the project in one combined super trench. We have chosen to work in this way to install all of the new services, gas, water, electric and district heating in one combined trench. This will save the roads having to be opened up separately for each services to be installed.
Works are progressing well: Hyde Road is complete, works are now progressing in Pitfield Street and the Shoreditch Park Primary School playground before the children return for the new term.
We issued a letter to all local residents confirming that we needed to close Hyde Road over 4 weekends, starting on 27 July and completing on the 17 August. This was to complete the supplies that cross from Hyde Road into Northport Street and Pitfield Street. We are pleased to report that we were able to complete the work across the Hyde Road junctions this weekend, a week ahead of programme. This means that we will no longer need to open the site this Saturday afternoon or Sunday.
We would like to thank you for your patience over the last three weekends during these works.
