Major Ground Improvement Works


Elmbridge Eagles Rugby Club, Oaken Lane, KT10 0RG


Work commenced on 2-07-18 to level the land in order to install drainage so that the local community can enjoy superb Sports Facilities all the year round. Currently the pitches are only playable safely for 5/6 months per annum.


The operation is dictated by the weather and no further materials will be delivered until the plant has spread and compacted into place what has already been brought in.


The recent deluges of rain have rendered the use of earth moving equipment unsafe. It has therefore been decided to suspend all operations until after the Christmas period.


Subject to outside factors beyond the operator's control, it is hoped that the settlement process will commence mid-spring.


The site will be secured by the end of this week. The ten foot wide pathway around the perimeter from the front entrance to the railway bridge stairway will still be accessible to pedestrians.

UPDATE 16 Jan 19


The ground improvement works are currently in “close down” due to inclement weather. There had always been provision made not to import material for January and possible February. We were advised by the operator pre-contract that this would likely be the case due to viability of imports at this time of year.


There is also a consideration of where the imported material is sourced. During the next couple of winter months the quality and quantity of material is harder to obtain.
