Acton Storm Tanks
In June 2019, the team successfully excavated to the bottom of the shaft, which is 33m deep and completed the base plug pour the following month.
The beginning of November saw the team complete the concrete pour to the air treatment chamber and the start to the demolition of the inlet chamber walls. The team have been busy preparing the site for the arrival of Rachel, our Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM), which will arrive next summer.
On either Wednesday 29 or Thursday 30 January, we will be removing one crane from our site as work on the Air Treatment Chamber is nearing completion.
For more information, look at the latest CLWG presentation on the tab below.
Our standard working hours are (with a 1-hour mobilisation period before and after these times):
Monday – Friday: 8am – 6pm
Saturday: 8am – 12 midday
Additionally, we have maintenance periods on the weekend:
Saturday: 1 – 5pm
Sunday: 10am – 4pm
We will be working 24-hours a day for approximately seven months. This will be taking place predominantly underground as we construct our tunnel.
On average, we have approximately seven heavy goods vehicles accessing the site. More up to date information about the vehicle movements can be found within the CLWG presentations.
The next Acton Storm Tanks CLWG will be announced shortly.
