Update from Tonbridge & Malling Borough Council regarding concerns with the piling regarding the new bridge.
Residents have raised concerns about the noise and vibrations in the village yesterday (8/12/14) due to the piling for the new bridge. Officers from the TMBC Environmental Protection team have been to the site today. The piling taking place is on the west bank of the river (ie: opposite side to Wouldham) and is driven sheet piling to about 13/14 metres. Bam Nuttall representatives accompanied TMBC to the Ferry Lane area whilst piling continued to take a view of any impact. Whilst in Ferry Lane they were able to go into a residents house in order to get a measured and well informed view of the operations taking place.
At present, TMBC do not believe there is any significant problem occurring. There is a low frequency noise but vibration is barely detectable. However, BAM have agreed to review their practice and will employ a different method of piling at about 10 metres and below to reduce the potential of vibration when harder strata might be found.
If you have any further concerns regarding the piling please contact TMBC Environmental Protection team at email@example.com or BAM Nuttall direct on their helpline – 01634 863092

ISSUED TO THE PRESS FROM TRENPORT – 26.6.14
You may be or have been contacted by residents in the Burham, Eccles and Wouldham area complaining about KCC Highways re-surfacing work on Pilgrims Way causing congestion in the area, notably Eccles yesterday and, possibly, Burham today.
We wish to make it clear on behalf of Trenport that this is in no way connected with the company's newly-commenced Peters Village and new Medway Crossing project.
If you do have further queries we will, of course, endeavour to help but suggest you contact the KCC press office in the first instance as it will have all the information about these works and their duration.

Peters Village update – 1/4/2014
WPC has been advised by Trenport that work started yesterday on pumping out the flooded Peters Pit. The work is likely to take up to 2 weeks. Once Peters Pit is empty, Ravens Knowle Pit will be assessed to see if this requires separate pumping or if by pumping out Peters Pit, the water at Ravens Knowle Pit lowers of its own accord.
An 8 inch tube has been run from the pit and across Hall Road into the river. A trench has been built to accomadate the tube and hard core placed over the trench. This is only temporary and the road will be restored after pumping out is complete. Trenport are working together with the Environment Agency on the pumping and Natural England has also been consulted to ensure that by filtering the water, no wildlife is transferred from the pit to the river.

New Medway Valley Crossing and Peters Village infrastructure construction to progress in 2014
Against the background of continued improvements in the economy, Trenport Investments Limited has made the decision to progress with the Peters Village development. The new village will ultimately provide up to 1,000 new homes together with community facilities including a new primary school, village hall, medical accommodation and local shops.
As a result of this decision, construction of the new Medway Valley Crossing and the infrastructure, including all east bank highway improvements for the new Peters Village near Wouldham, will now go ahead as soon as possible. Construction will therefore commence in the Spring of 2014, the east bank highway works will be completed by mid 2015 and the new bridge open to the public during the Autumn of 2016. The building of houses will start during 2015, once the east bank highway works have been completed. Detailed negotiations with contractors are now underway and full details of the construction timetable will be provided as soon as this is available.
Trenport’s website will be regularly updated with news and the dedicated helpline number remains available to respond to individual enquiries.
