Piling will start on 2 March at South Leith Parish Church wall and is expected to last two weeks.
Sheet Piling on South Leith Parish Church Wall - Constitution Street
To facilitate the works being undertaken on the Trams to Newhaven project we will be piling the boundary wall line on Constitution Street at the South Leith Parish Church. This
will involve installing 6m sheets of steel piles into the ground to support the higher ground level in the graveyard while the works progress.
The piles will be installed using a vibro piling method via the use of a piling rig which is less intrusive than the traditional hammer method. The rig will arrive prior to the works commencing.
Noise and vibration will be monitored throughout the process to ensure that the works are kept within the specified limits stipulated within the Code of Construction Practice.
The piling is expected to commence 2 March 2020 with works taking approximately 2 weeks.
If you have any concerns or further questions regarding these works then please contact the Trams to Newhaven project team by email on [email protected] or
alternatively contact our customer helpline on 0131 322 1122 (local rate 8am to 8pm, Monday to Sunday).
During the time that the above works are being undertaken, all efforts will be made to minimise disruption and inconvenience to residents and businesses as much as possible.
