At our Blackfriars Bridge Foreshore site, we are working in a cofferdam, a dry working area built into the river, which we have split into two sections.
We are currently removing sheet piles in the eastern section of the cofferdam. We are using a vibration hammer to loosen the steel from the riverbed to allow us to lift the piles out and onto a barge for removal. There will be some extra noise associated with the use of the vibration hammer.
Our working hours will be 8am to 6pm, Monday – Friday and we will be taking regular breaks throughout the day. Noise and vibration levels will be monitored constantly during the works.
The western section of the cofferdam will remain in place for a further year.
