Breakspear Road South closure extended

This just in from HS2:

Road closure of Breakspear Road South

Further to our update of 6 July 2018, whilst carrying out work to divert the water pipeline, Affinity Water have encountered some unexpected services within the carriageway which has required deeper excavations. The consequence of this is a delay to completing the works. We therefore need to extend the works to Friday 17 August 2018 and the closure of Breakspear Road South will remain in place until this date. We apologise for any inconvenience this will cause.

Planned Euston shutdowns

We received the following notice from Virgin Trains:

We’re contacting you to let you know about some engineering works that will completely close London Euston on 18-19, 25-27 August and 1-2 September.

There will be no services to or from London Euston across these dates, so we recommend that you don’t attempt to travel from the station on these dates. If you need to travel on these dates and plan to use alternative routes, please plan your trip carefully, allow a bit longer to get to your destination and double-check your journey plans before you travel.

We’d hate for you to get stuck. Please visit
