West Ruislip works prolonged

From HS2

What we are doing

Extension of utility works on Ickenham Road
Further to our notification of 24 June we will be extending the utility works on Ickenham Road. We wanted to complete these works by 12 August, however, we will need to overrun until 2 September 2022, and the current traffic management will remain in place. Access to businesses will be maintained.

During the final phase of reinstating the central reservation the team have had to slow down for safety reasons and concrete works have had to be postponed to avoid material failure due to the extreme weather.

We apologise for the inconvenience caused by these works and for the extension to them. We are doing what we can to keep disruption to a minimum.

How these works might affect you
In order to carry out these utility works safely:

– a footpath diversion will be in place including a temporary pedestrian crossing either side of the work area
– the cycle path will be closed for the duration of these works
– the West Ruislip bus Stop M will be suspended and temporarily moved to a safe location.
– the West Ruislip bus Stop S will remain open at all times.

Your utility services will not be affected.

Night closures of A412

FROM HS2

A412 Closures August – October

As you may be aware, regrettably there is a need for us to close the A412 overnight for a substantial period to build the viaduct decking across the A412. We now have a finalised set of dates and times with Bucks Council.

We understand that this may inconvenience some residents, businesses and other road users in Harefield that use the A412 between Denham and Maple Cross in the early hours, but for their own safety we cannot allow road users to pass under the girder whilst works are underway.

The road will be closed overnight from 10pm and reopened at 6am the following morning, every day (Mondays to Sundays) from Friday 19 August. Works are scheduled to end, and the road reopen 24 hours a day from 25 October 2022.
