Breakspear Road South closure postponed

This from HS2:

Dear Residents

We understand from many meetings with you that there has been a strong desire to defer the Breakspear Road South closure works until the summer holidays. HS2 strives to be a good neighbour every single day and work collaboratively with the local community. This has not been an easy decision. This has required careful consideration of the risks and benefits of deferring the works and the impact on the overall programme. I am pleased to inform you that as a result of these discussions we have decided to postpone the road closure until the end of the summer school term (July 19), avoiding the exam period. We will continue to engage with the utility companies to identify a new date for these works to be completed. We will keep you informed of these discussions.

I hope this demonstrates that we take our role in being a good neighbour seriously and have listened and responded to the needs of the community.

Please be aware it will take a few days for me to organise the removal of signage and update any communication materials we have made available about the closure.

With very kind regards

Julie

  1. That is a good start. The lower traffic levels over the school holidays will hopefully soften the disruption and pollution caused by the traffic jams resulting from the road closure. The next step is to re-examine the project management of the proposed work to ensure that as much work as possible in preparation is done to enable any necessary closure to be kept to a minimum.
