Thames Water/Soldier’s Return

Thames Water update
We are working to divert our sewer to make way for the new HS2 railway. Following the London Borough of Hillingdon’s planning approval with planning conditions, we have received sign off of some of the conditions. This means we can plan to build the entrance point of the temporary haul road off High Road, Ickenham.

New road entrance
Subject to approval from the London Borough of Hillingdon, we will carry out work from Monday 13 December until Friday 24 December. This will be to construct a new road entrance off High Road, next to the entrance of The Soldiers Return.

The footpath will remain open for the duration of our works.

The High Road will remain open at all times, but we will need to close half of the northern lane. Traffic management will be in place to keep the traffic flowing.

Future work
We will not be working over the Christmas period and the site will close from 24 December until 4 January 2022.

When we restart our work, we will continue to construct the temporary road from the new access point to the Ickenham Green allotments.
