I've sent round an update to residents living in properties near Putney Embankment to update them on the latest Tideway Tunnel works. I just wanted to make sure everyone is aware of what's happening over the next few months, so please see my update below.
Tideway Tunnel works at Putney Embankment update
I wanted to get in touch to give you a quick update about the next phase of work shortly about to take place on Putney Foreshore as part of the Tideway Tunnel project.
I recently chaired the latest meeting of my Tideway Tunnel Community Liaison Working Group with local residents and businesses, and the Tideway team. This meeting outlined the next phase of work and I wanted to let people know what to expect over the coming months. The preparatory works to this site have now completed and the temporary slipway will be opened later this month, once the existing slipway has closed.
From July, the main works on the foreshore are beginning and there will be a 6 month programme of works from September 2017. Some of this work will be noisy, although Tideway has confirmed that it will limit this work as much as possible to ensure minimal disruption to residents. All Tideway work will be carried out between prescribed hours of 8am and 6pm during the week, and 8am and 1pm on Saturdays. Tideway will be contacting any properties immediately close to the river that they feel could be affected by this work to carry out a pre-condition survey and will be in touch with those residents shortly.
Community concerns - contact information
If you have any concerns about the work, Tideway have a 24 hour helpdesk where you can report any problems. The contact number is 0800 30 80 80 or you can email them at email@example.com. However, you can also get in touch with me, and I can follow up any concerns with the Tideway team.
In the meantime, Tideway want to support local community projects that they can help. So far they have be in touch with groups like Putney Sea Scouts and Regenerate Rise, but they are very interested in any other local projects they can help with so if you know of a community group that needs help, do let me know and I’ll ask their team to get in touch.
Finally, if you would like to be involved with my Tideway Tunnel Community Liaison Working Group, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can add you to the contact list for meetings. We meet roughly every 3 months and it’s a good forum to get updated on the works and to raise any issues.
I hope this update has been helpful.
