West Ruislip concrete breaking trials

From HS2:

At the West Ruislip site, we will be carrying out a 5-day trial of a machine that breaks down concrete into smaller reusable parts.

If this trial is successful, it will mean that the number of lorry movements required to transport concrete to and from site will be reduced and will remove a significant number of lorries from local roads.

What we are doing
Over the coming months we will be carrying out enabling works in the Harvil Road area. These works will allow us to prepare the area which is required for the temporary storage and treatment of the soil that will be removed from the tunnels, before they are placed in their final location.

Our initial works will include:

  • Setting up security fencing and hoarding
  • Delivery of equipment for the removal of topsoil
  • Vegetation clearance, including brambles and hedgerows
  • Preparation works to secure and divert a section of the U49 footpath around the works area

Latest Ickenham Residents’ Association Newsletter

This from the IRA:

At long last we are able to print and deliver our latest newsletter

They should be with your road stewards early this week and with you shortly afterwards

We hope all our members get one dropping through their letterbox but just in case we will be leaving copies in the Library and, hopefully, in Maison du Soleil

This edition will NOT be available on our website.

We will not be collecting subs at the this time but hope to do so later in the year.

Thank you to our delivery team for their help and support

U46 Footpath Diversion

from HS2

The U46 footpath diversion

We are progressing to a stage in our works where we will be diverting a number of footpaths. These works will facilitate the completion of the internal haul road and help to keep as many vehicles off local roads as possible. Our first diversion is the U46 footpath, the short footpath that runs from the Celandine Way to Breakspear Road South near Oak Farm. The surface of U43 has been improved and extended and it currently progresses south behind the trees and emerges at a marked crossing point in Breakspear Road South. Please see map on link below.
