What are our working hours?
Standard working hours are 8am to 6pm Monday-Friday and 8am-1pm Saturday. Also, there is a 1 hour mobilisation period before and after the Standard Working Hours, plus maintenance periods on Saturday 1-5pm and Sundays 10am-4pm.
For the main construction work, periods of extended working hours will be intermittent and are required to perform certain construction activities, such as works for concrete pours, pilling and the construction of a diaphragm walls for shaft construction
There will be approximately 27 months, commencing in early 2018, of 24-hour working during the construction of the Greenwich Connection Tunnel. Works will predominately be underground. Surface works include essential support activities such as processing and handling of excavated material and shaft lifting operations. The majority of surface works will be within an enclosed acoustic shed.
How will we access the site?
An anticipated daily average of 25 heavy goods vehicles will access the site. This will rise to approximately 77 heavy goods vehicles per day over an estimated twelve-month period during tunnelling.
