[CUCBC Captains] Fwd: Chisholm Trail and Abbey-Chesterton Bridge Update

Dear all,

Following on from Matthew's earlier email, the Jetty under the Railway
Bridge closed today, ready for the piling works to start next week. Please
ensure that all of your crews (and in particular any singles / doubles /
pairs / coxless IVs and Quads) are aware that during these piling works
there will likely be a barge under the railway bridge blocking up to half
of its span. We expect there to be someone on duty to assist with river
traffic whenever the barge is in place, as it will only be wide enough for
one boat at a time. We're currently expecting this phase of the work to be
completed by the start of Michaelmas.

Best wishes,

for Abbey-Chesterton bridge

Works will take place from 19 August 08:00- 18:00 Monday to Friday

We would like to update you on Chisholm Trail, a mostly off road
north-south strategic foot and cycleway through Cambridge and plans for the
Abbey-Chesterton bridge. Phase One, which will open up private green areas
and link Stourbridge and Coldham’s Commons is currently under construction.

As you will be aware from our previous message, the jetty under the railway
bridge will be closed from today through to Summer 2020. Works also involve
the partial closure of the river and, potentially, full closure of the
river to all access for short periods. These closures are needed in order
to create a safe working environment for piling and construction of the
bridge base as well as replacement of the jetty. Works will involve heavy
machinery and some noise is anticipated.

We can now confirm that piling works will take place from 19 August until
October. Works will only take place during the day time 08:00-18:00 from
Monday to Friday. Please note that the piling works will not be continuous
through this period. Works noise and vibration will be closely monitored
throughout construction to ensure they do not breach acceptable limits.
Nearby residents are being informed of the piling works by letter.

If you have any specific concerns relating to the piling works, please get
in touch with the Site Manager Jason Sparks on jason.sparks at tarmac.com or
via the our of hours number 0800 876 6087.
