School crossing patrol officer
Over the past six months Telford Homes have been working with Hackney Council, to fund the training
and resourcing of a School Crossing Patrol officer at the junction of Wallis Road and Berkshire Road.
Having completed his training, Justin is our new crossing patrol officer and will be on duty to help children and adults cross the junction safely at school pick up and drop off times during the week. As a local musician, Justin said “I am pleased to be working in the local area in a job that helps people. It also allows me the flexibility to continue with my music and creativity.”
As before, the Telford Homes traffic marshal will remain in place during operational hours at the site entrance to manage vehicles entering.
Concrete construction works
Concrete frame construction to block A is steadily progressing and should be completed to roof level by December 2019. Perimeter scaffolding for the construction of the block A brickwork façade will be erected during November 2019.
Bulk excavation of the basement for blocks B, C, D and E is complete, and consequently air monitoring will now be suspended until excavation works recommence for the service corridor area.
Concrete construction works for blocks B, C, D and E foundations are complete. Concrete frame construction works from basement level to roof level has commenced. We anticipate that these works will be ongoing until the end of February 2020. The perimeter scaffold construction works to blocks B, C, D and E for the brickwork façade will begin in early December 2019.
Excavation works to the service corridor
Excavation works to the service corridor, which will eventually link Wallis Road with Hackney Wick station, is scheduled to begin the week commencing 4th November 2019 for a period of eight weeks. These excavation
works will be carried out in line with the remediation strategy. Air quality monitoring will recommence during this period at all on-site and offsite receptor locations. Services for the site, including electric cables, gas supplies
and drainage, will also be installed during this period of construction.
Site Logistics & Deliveries
The site will continue to take delivery of necessary materials to facilitate the construction works. Deliveries will be managed to ensure the site has only one delivery at a time. Traffic marshals will be operating at the site entrance at all times to minimise disruption and ensure the safety of the public.
The project team is committed to maintaining a safe environment both on and off-site. Our aim is to complete the works as quickly as possible to minimise the duration of any disruption caused by the works.
