Dear Neighbour, Crossrail Programme – Harold Wood Station – Mid week night works Network Rail is undertaking essential improvement works in your area as part of the Crossrail construction programme which will deliver a new railway, called the Elizabeth line, linking Reading and Heathrow in the west to Shenfield and Abbey Wood in the east, via new tunnels under central London. We are improving stations and infrastructure to allow more frequent and reliable services to operate and provide a better travelling experience for passengers. Unfortunately there has been an addition to our work schedule resulting in our site team working during the week, at night, starting Monday the 13th of June 2016. We apologise for the short notice of this change, unfortunately these works must be completed in the five hour time slot between last and first trains. All our work will be managed to minimise disruption to our neighbours, residents and businesses. Safety is our number one priority and unfortunately this means some of our works have to be carried out while trains are not running during the weekends and at night. We will continue to write to you with updates and hope you find the below information useful. Station works Date and Time 13 to 30 June 2016 Mid-week night works

Date and Time
Description of works breaker at the start of the shift, once this is complete we anticipate the remaining tasks producing lower noise levels. These works are necessary to accommodate a test train that will check clearances for the new Crossrail trains.
Whilst we do anticipate these works will create noise at times we will do what we reasonably can in order to keep noise levels to a minimum. 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. We apologise for any inconvenience these essential works may cause and appreciate your patience. However, if you have any additional questions or concerns, please telephone our 24Hour National Helpline on 03457 11 41 41 and for more information about the Crossrail Programme please visit www.crossrail.co.uk.
