Dear Neighbour, Crossrail Programme – Platform Extension Work – Chadwell Heath Network Rail is undertaking essential improvement works in your area as part of the Crossrail Programme, linking Reading and Heathrow in the west to Shenfield and Abbey Wood in the east, via new tunnels under central London. As part of the Crossrail project, some infrastructure and station upgrades are required between Stratford and Shenfield. At Chadwell Heath the platforms will be extended at the western end of the station to accommodate the new Crossrail trains. All work will be managed in order to minimise disruption to our neighbours, residents and businesses. However, safety is our number one priority and unfortunately this means a lot of our works have to be carried out at weekends and during the night whilst trains are not running. Please see below for some further information regarding upcoming work in your area. Date and Time July 2016 - November 2016
Description of works Drainage and platform surfacing works; installation of new lighting columns and cable ducting.
Core hours 08:00 -18:00hrs Monday to Friday Saturday 08:00 -13:00hrs
We anticipate properties adjacent to the current western end of the platforms will notice increased noise levels during certain stages of the work.
Also weekends Typically 23:30hrs Saturday to 05:00hrs Monday

We apologise for any inconvenience these essential works may cause. Whilst we do anticipate some of these works to be quite noisy at times, Best Practicable Means are adopted in order to keep noise levels to a minimum. Our site operatives will briefed on not generating unnecessary noise when on site. Machines and vehicles in intermittent use will be shut down whenever practical during periods between works. The local authority has been, and will continue to be, consulted through the Control of Pollution Act 1974 (Section 61) process regarding the implementation of the works.
I hope this information is helpful. However, if you have any additional questions or concerns, please telephone our 24-Hour National Helpline on 03457 11 41 41 or alternatively you can email us at [email protected]
