We are about to start site works on our block of land in a new small estate and am going to contact the owners of the vacant block next door in regards to using their land for access of excavator and trucks. There will be site cut and retaining walls
I am having trouble wording a letter to them. can anyone help me with a basic layout and wording.

Easier to ask for forgiveness than permission
Your builder may be able to provide some direction given their experience with these matters.
Or if like ours the subbies just did as they wished ....

Yeah I reckon a phone call might be a good start.
Just be really friendly, "how are you going mate" type stuff.
Just say the builders asked me to call and see if it would be OK if they access the boundary line from your block for retaining works.
That way not only you but the builder get on their good side.

if you do get permission, make sure you get good photos of the kerb and channel and crossover of your neighbours block. Just incase the builders trucks etc. damage it; you can then make the builder pay for it to be repaired rather than them saying that it was there before. It will protect you and your neighbour; it would be a good idea to give them a copy.

How do you know it is encroaching? Have you had a survey done and is it a legal extension (apart from the possible encroachment)?
