Notice of postponed utility surveys – Curzon Street

We need to postpone the planned utility trial hole surveys along a section of Curzon Street that were due to take place on Friday 9 July. These surveys will now take place on Wednesday 14 July, dates are subject to the progress of the surveys programme.

To complete the utility trial hole inspections, we will use a vacuum excavator, which uses compressed air to loosen or agitate the ground. The loosened material is then removed using the vacuum on the machine creating a hole. At times we will also use hand digging tools to excavate the trial holes. Once the surveys are carried out, we will backfill and reinstate all the trial holes.

These surveys will help us to plan where utility diversions will be required as we prepare to construct the railway in Birmingham.

To be able to carry out these inspections safely and effectively, we will need to put in place manned stop and go boards along sections of Curzon Street. The stop and go boards will be operational from 9:30am to 3:30pm. Access to properties and businesses will be maintained at all times.
