18This excavation by Murphy Ltd in December 2010 was at the junction of Cheapside and King Street in the City of London and forms part of the Pinnacle 33kv route; as you can see there are many existing services present making trench excavation very difficult along with the installation of trench support prior to duct installation.
19This excavation in Cheapside was adjacent to St Mary-Le-Bow Church and shows the additional trench support required for a deep excavation along with steel beams and nylon straps to support existing services.The excavation at this point was moving from the Westbound carriageway into the Southbound carriageway; a shallow bank of approx 30 telecoms ducts with a concrete surround was uncovered in the middle of the road; beside this was a large Water main followed by a large Gas main therefore the only space available for our new ducts (26 in total) was a 250mm gap below the exposed mains and just above the Victorian brick built sewer approx 3.5 meters deep.The trench had to be extended to approx 5 meters wide to create enough room for the ducts to be installed in a flat formation by 3.5 meters deep; an excavation of this size required a temporary works design and this section alone took approx three weeks to complete.
20This excavation in Cheapside by Laing O’Rourke shows the four x 200mm and 6 x 89mm ducts for the Pinnacle 33kv scheme along with 16 x 11kv ducts installed as part of the One New Change scheme; the 4 x 200mm ducts laid flat in the trench are ready to be connected following the installation of a cement bound sand bed.
21This section of work in Worship Street Hackney was completed by Compass Infrastructure (formally Nacap) and shows 200mm ducts installed for four separate 33 kv schemes, 4 ducts for the Pinnacle Tower (red route); two ducts to Bishops Place (Green Route); two ducts to the Interxion Data centre at Brick Lane and four ducts for the Blue route; the 89mm ducts for the pilot cables were installed shortly after; all kv ducts have been surrounded by cement bound sand.Also noticeable in the photo each side of the 200mm ducts is a layer of very hard dark coloured aggregate which is believed to be the original 17th century road construction as confirmed by the Museum of London archaeologist who visits site on a regular basis.
22This photo shows 24 x 500 metre drums of 33kv Copper cable recently delivered to our contractors Compass Infrastructure (formerly Nacap) and currently stored in Bishopsgate adjacent to the Pinnacle Tower; cable installation has now started and will continue into 2012.Compass did provide overnight and weekend security.
