Two news items: Meet Hurd/avoid Breakspear Road South

They’re not strictly connected.

Our MP, Nick Hurd, is inviting residents to meet him in Café du Soleil on July 5th between 10 and 11.

And, as part of the ongoing HS2 saga, Breakspear Road South is officially closing as follows:

Closure of Breakspear Road South – 20 July to 14 September

Posted on Jun 21st 2019 by HS2 in Hillingdon [[ Sorry for delay – I’ve been away ]]

We are continuing HS2 preparatory works in your area. As part of this work we need to close a section of Breakspear Road South to safely complete the construction of the new Merck, Sharpe and Dohme access road, along with re-positioning and reinstalling of various utility and service connections.

We recognise road closures and diversions affect both the public and the local community and will cause significant impacts on your journey plans.

We have scheduled the work to be completed in three phases, which we explain fully below.

Phase 1 – Full road closure for 28 days, starting Saturday 20 July at 6am to Friday 16 August at 8pm

Phase 2 – Northbound lane closure for 16 days, starting Friday 16 August at 8pm to Saturday 31 August at 6am

Phase 3 – Full road closure for 15 days, starting Saturday 31 August at 6am to Saturday 14 September 2019 at 8pm

We encourage all drivers to follow the advised diversion route shown in the notification, which can be found here. We have created a dedicated Breakspear Road South Closure page on our website here.

The closure will begin north of the Merck, Sharpe and Dohme entrance and end after Gatesmead Farm. Access will be maintained to residential properties at all times. In order to complete the works as quickly as possible, we will be working 24 hours a day in the first two weeks and the final week of the closure.

While the various utilities providers are assisting HS2 to deliver the works required please be aware that should operational issues occur on their infrastructure network during the closure, then there is a risk that the utility works may be postponed to a later date as maintaining essential residential customer utilities supplies must take priority.

If you would like to talk to us about this closure please call our helpdesk on 08081434434 or visit us at a drop-in. Please click here for details of our upcoming drop-ins.

One thought on “Two news items: Meet Hurd/avoid Breakspear Road South

  1. Whilst delaying the closure to the school holidays was welcome they seem to have taken an opportunity to increase the overall length of closures rather than to properly project manage to shorten the closure. Why do we now have second closure rather than closing southbound in phase 3 . Anyway isn’t the whole project going to be shut down by the end of the year?
