Breakspear Road South problems

BRS remains closed for repairs to the bridge but we have received this today from HS2

Just a note to let you know that overnight someone has stolen the traffic management signage for Breakspear Road South and so there is likely to be a large amount of confusion until this can be resolved.  

None of the metal stands have been taken and so it appears to be either vandalism or an attempt to cause disruption as the signs themselves are of very little value.  

Despite this being a Network Rail closure, the SCS team will assist if requires to reinstate the signage.

Get your MP to support an HS2 rethink?

From The Wildlife Trusts:

Many people are concerned about the serious risk HS2 poses to nature. Last year we were extremely disappointed when the Department for Transport confirmed HS2 would go ahead, without any acknowledgement of the devastating impact on our wildlife.

But now we have another chance. Thanks to a petition launched by Chris Packham, Parliament is about to debate whether to rethink HS2. This is a real opportunity, and we want as many MPs as possible to speak up for nature. Will you invite your MP to save the date and stand up for nature? We’ve created a simple form to help you:

Ask your MP to speak up

HS2 is currently the best example of how NOT to deliver national infrastructure projects, and will leave nature in a worse state for the next generation. At a time when nature has never been more in need of protection and restoration, it is unthinkable that HS2 is destroying whole ecosystems.

Please ask your MP to support the HS2 parliamentary debate and speak up for nature. You can use our simple form to send an email to your MP.

Thank you to the many Ickenham residents who provide ongoing support. Together, we can make a difference for nature.
