Just thought I would touch base with you all to confirm that the ground investigation work will commence next week.
We will be onsite for up to 10 days undertaking boreholes and windowless sampling in Seventh, Eighth and Ninth Row, Northumberland Close and North Seaton Road. This is a geotechnical investigation which will allow the engineering team to assess the soil conditions within which the flood reduction works are proposed. The boreholes will be undertaken with a small mounted tripod rig towed to site and assembled at the borehole locations (BH), the windowless sampling (WS) will be undertaken by a small drilling rig mounted on rubber tracks. Two or three boreholes / windowless samples can be undertaken in a day, disturbance will be minimal and upon completion the bore holes will be reinstated back to the original condition.
A copy of our customer notification letter and plans showing the borehole locations are posted on the Planned Works tab.
If you have any queries please feel free to contact me via this portal or by ringing our Customer Contact Centre on 0345 717 1100. I will be pleased to help.
