An extension of working hours has been granted for Thursday 22 July for the noise barriers to be installed on Manor railway bridge.

Due to the work taking place over the railway line, Network Rail has requested that the work takes place at night.

The work should not be noisy, as it only involves the lifting of panels into place, however, nearby residents may be able to see the lights.

This should be the last works that need a night time railway possession.

Night work during November 2009 (large version)

Work will be taking place at night for the next two weeks in order to construct the parapets for the new Manor Railway bridge.

The work is scheduled for between 9pm and 5am on the nights of Monday 11 January to Friday 15 January, and the nights of Monday 18 January to Friday 22 January.

For safety reasons, this work cannot be done while trains are running. Skanska will make every attempt to minimise disturbance to local residents during these works.

Manor Railway Bridge, November 09 (large version)

Work on the Manor Railway Bridge will start at 5am tomorrow, Tuesday 15 December, to complete the concrete pour for the bridge in one day.

Work may continue into the evening if the predicted low temperatures slow down the rate at which the concrete can be poured.

Skanska has received permission from the planning authority for this change in normal working hours, and for two weeks of night works in mid January to complete the bridge parapets.

Manor railway bridge night work (large version)

Night work on the Manor railway bridge is going well so far.

There are now 15 beams in place with a further seven to be lifted in, after which the finishing works will start.

Relief Road work about to get noisy? That’s missing the point.

October 29, 2009

Following a local media headline that ‘work on the Relief Road is about to get noisy’ the Weymouth Relief Road team is reassuring local residents that night working to lift railway bridge beams into place near Manor Roundabout should not keep them awake at night.

As we’ll be working over the railway line we can only do the work at night. The point of the team’s news release to local media was to tell residents about the work, so they knew what was happening if they saw lights or trucks moving about in the middle of the night. Residents close to the area have been informed of the works taking place by letter. As with any construction work there will be some noise as the beams are lifted into place, but it should be kept to a minimum – apart from our responsibility to the local community, the planning authority wouldn’t allow noisy work overnight.
