In a word, no. As long as the fence is properly installed then the hedge should remain unharmed. If it is established then a little root damage will not do it any long term harm. It is worth discussing with the neighbours exactly what they plan to do as I'm sure they would be more than happy to take your considerations into account. Most types of shrub used in hedging are pretty hardy such as laurel, leylandii, photinia and privet so just make sure the tradespeople who erect the fence take a little bit of care not to damage your hedge and it will be fine.
