Now that the government has given the notice to proceed for HS2 the work is starting in earnest.
We continue to have regular conference calls with HS2, the main contractors (SCS and Align) and London Borough of Hillingdon.
The most immediate impact in our area will be SCS preparation works in Harvil Road for the Harvil Road realignment(and other works) and Breakspear Road South for the construction of the haul road between West Ruislip and Harvil Road (the haul road was our recommendation in petitioning to avoid HGVs going through the village). This work will lead to lane closures in Harvil Road during October and November and occasional lane closures in Breakspear Road South; we are assured these will be coordinated to ensure one road system is fully working.
There will also be weekend road closures.
The other contractor – Align – will also be working in Harvil Road to construct the haul road to HOAC alongside Dews lane. Their works should be coordinated with SCS.
Align will also be closing the A412 between Denham and Maple Cross with Harvil Road as the diversion – dates to be advised.
The power supply contractor will be completing their works in Jan 21 which will again include some road work in Ickenham Road between West Ruislip site and the White Bear roundabout.
Full details should be available at some time on the HS2 Commonplace site
