Further sleepless nights have been confirmed after Network Rail informed residents of planned overnight Crossrail works until August.
Recent overnight work has led to disturbances for people living near the railway.
The installation of foundations for the project has been planned to take place at night to cause minimal disruption to the train services, while providing a safe working area for engineers.
While a quieter ‘vibration’ method is used to install most of the foundations, Network Rail said louder pile-driving is required where the ground is tougher.
On Saturday and Sunday night ‘noisy work’ will take place between Forlease Road and Norden Road.
In a recent letter to residents, Network Rail thanked them for their ‘on-going patience’ and said 'less noisy piling methods' and electrification work will continue most nights until Wednesday, August 31 from 10.15pm-5.15am.
