Breakspear Road South closure: official

This from HS2:

Closure of Breakspear Road South – 31 May to 29 July

Posted on May 13th 2019 by HS2 in Hillingdon

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 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 27 days, starting Friday 31 May at 6am to Thursday 27 June at 8pm.

Phase 2: Northbound lane closure for 17 days, starting Thursday 27 June at 8pm to Friday 12 July at 6am.

Phase 3: Full road closure for 16 days, starting Friday 12 July at 6am to Sunday 28 July at 8pm.

Full reopening of the road on Monday 29 July 2019.

We encourage all drivers to follow the advised diversion route shown in the notification. A detailed map will be available shortly. The notification sent to residents can be found 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.

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

At the events you will be able to:

  • Talk to our team about the Colne Valley Viaduct’s design, landscaping and construction.

Harvil Road Closure – this weekend

Notice from Costain/Skanska:

Saturday 27 April – Sunday 28 April 2019, Harvil Road closure

The vegetation clearance around Harvil Road on Saturday 27 April and Sunday 28 April requires a road closure on a section of Harvil Road to the areas to the north and south of the current Cadent Gas site on the east of Harvil Road. Ecological surveys have been undertaken and an ecologist will be on site for the duration of the works.

RAF Northolt – please respond – air space usage

This from RAF Northolt:

Royal Air Force Northolt is required to submit an Airspace Change Proposal under the Department for Transport’s Future Airspace Strategy Implementation (South) programme.  All airports in the South East of the United Kingdom are taking part in this programme, which will not be implemented before 2024.

This Airspace Change Proposal will be implemented under the Civil Aviation Authority’s ‘CAP1616’ process, which directs an airport or airfield to engage with those geographical areas that may be affected by any proposed flightpath changes.  We have identified that your area could be affected by Royal Air Force Northolt’s Airspace Change Proposal.

We want to ensure that you are aware of this Airspace Change Proposal, and seek the input of local residents before we start the initial airspace design process.  Before we start to put any lines on maps, we would like to understand what is important to local residents and this information will influence the design principles that we use in designing the Airspace Change.  This way we can ensure that local opinion is taken into account, where there are choices to be made in the airspace design process.  

You can let your views be known by completing the design principles form and sending an electronic copy to the email address below, or by posting a hard copy to ‘Senior Air Traffic Controller, RAF Northolt, RUISLIP, HA4 6NG’.  Please rank the design principles in it in order of preference for Tables Two and Three.

The form is here: 20190320-RAF Northolt Draft Design Principles-AL3-O

The associated PowerPoint presentation is here: 20190412-CLG B – 23 Apr 19-O

We stress that operations and usage at RAF Northolt will remain unchanged, just the airspace in which our aircraft operate will change.  What we are looking to achieve at this stage is simply to understand which of the design principles are most important to residents.  From there we can go about designing the airspace and share the proposals once complete.  For electronic contact please use the following email address:  NOR-Airspaceportal@mod.gov.uk
