Gipsy Patch Lane - piling work

South Gloucestershire Council logo

South Gloucestershire Council - 23rd February 2021

This email is to inform you of further piling work that will be taking place at the railway bridge on Gipsy Patch Lane, as part of the Cribbs Patchway metrobus extension (CPME).

The piling work is needed as part of the construction of a retaining wall for the new railway bridge and carriageway below. The piling is only required on the east (residential) side of the new bridge.

The work is expected to begin on Wednesday 24 February and will last approximately one week. The work will take place during the daytime only, between the hours of 8am and 6pm, and on weekdays only. No piling work will be carried out at weekends.

Please note, these dates and timeframes may be subject to change.

Piling can be noisy, however, Network Rail, and its contractor, will work to minimise the disturbance and will put in a number of noise mitigation measures including sound barriers around the piling equipment. Noise and vibration will be monitored throughout the work and adjustments will be made if necessary.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this work and thank you for your continued patience.

If you have any questions concerning the piling work, please contact the Network Rail 24-hour helpline on 03457 11 41 41.


The CPME is a £57 million investment to reduce congestion and improve journey times for all road users in your area by providing a new quick, reliable public transport system. It will provide a direct route between Bristol Parkway railway station, Stoke Gifford, the Cribbs Patchway New Neighbourhood, The Mall shopping centre and will link with the wider metrobus network.

CPME will also deliver improved facilities for cyclists and pedestrians, making it easier and safer to travel by foot or by bike.

CPME is funded by the West of England Combined Authority (WECA) and by the West of England Local Enterprise Partnership through the Local Growth Fund.
