What works are taking place?
In order to construct the railway, we need to supply electricity to our compounds and work sites. SSEN will be working in your area to upgrade the local electricity network so these supplies can be provided.

Starting on 21 March SSEN will begin works to install a high voltage underground cable as part of planned upgrade works along Copthall Road West. We expect these works to last for six weeks. Works will
require excavation of trenches along the roadside and work will be done sequentially to reduce the impact on nearby properties.

Any Public Rights of Way will be maintained wherever possible. While works are taking place access will be managed by on site staff with signage and traffic marshalling for pedestrians. We do not anticipate any interruption to your electricity supply. Further works will be required in Breakspear Road to complete these upgrades. We will write to residents with further information in due course.

Advance warning signage will be put in place prior to the works taking place. Please note works are subject to change and may change due to the impact of the weather or programme changes. HS2 and SSEN will do all we can to keep you updated regarding changes to access and works progress. Further information on local impacts and access arrangements will be distributed by SSEN when works commence.
