GROUND INVESTIGATIONS UNDERWAY
On 28 September, we resumed geotechnical investigations to test and monitor the ground and water conditions in the Penlink corridor. Please check out the updated timeline for the investigations. These activities can continue in COVID-19 Alert Level 3 under strict health and safety rules, which will keep staff safe.
Between October and mid-December, we will use a helicopter to carry special machinery into some areas in the Penlink corridor where road access isn’t possible. You can find more about the ground investigations on our Visual updates.
We are also undertaking site investigations to accurately locate the existing underground utility services in October/November. The findings from the utility services investigations will enable us to safely work around these in the future and identify any potential impacts from the construction works.
As well as working during daytime, we will be working at night between 9pm and 4am in some areas to complete the investigations to make up the time lost during Covid alert level 4. We will minimise noise and thank you in advance for your understanding while we undertake these necessary investigations.
All our staff and contractors comply with strict health and safety requirements. If you have any questions about the site works, please email or call us rather than directly approaching our teams on-site to help us follow the health and safety regulations.
