The tunnel building starts in the Autumn and although, strictly the project is still under some legal scrutiny, if all goes according to plan, building will start on the whole project and at the Acton Storm Tanks end in the Autumn of 2017. The Acton site's contribution to the project is expected to take around 3.5 years. For local residents, work will be permitted during the week, 08.00 to 18.00 and on Saturdays, 08.00 to 13.00. To begin with most of the work will be related to site preparation and assembly of machinery (just at the end near where Hatfield Road joins Greenend Road. and the construction of the tunnel will follow until early in the second year. During this first 15 or so months is when there is expected to be most of the earth excavation and vehicle traffic. All the vehicles will be on and off site from the same (North West) corner travelling (it is believed) in one direction down Warple Way and up Stanley Gardens. During the tunnel lining phases (probably from 12 to 15 months into the work or, say, late 2018/early 2019) most of the work will be underground.
There are now 46 Neighbourhood Watch coordinators in Southfield - the largest number for any London Ward.
A website has been set up on the original group of houses, in Alexandra, St George's and Hatfield Roads, and their history. It holds information drawn from the 1911 census on the households, occupations and birthplaces of those living there, but also covers other topics like the neighbourhood, the shops, school, church, and park, the local transport facilities, which once included our own station, Rugby Road Halt. It also looks at the area in wartime, and welcomes contributions.
More information about the history of Acton in general can be found on the website of the Acton History Group.
