Reminder: Breakspear Road South closure

Reminder: Closure of Breakspear Road South starting 6am on Saturday 20 July

Posted on Jul 18th 2019 by HS2 in Hillingdon

We’re continuing our 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 and re-position and reinstall various utility and service connections.

We recognise road closures and diversions affect both the public and the local community and will cause significant impacts on your journey plans. We apologise for the disruption that these works will cause to journeys in the area.

We have scheduled the work to be completed in three phases, which we explain fully below.

Phase 1 – Full road closure for 28 days, starting Saturday 20 July at 6am to Friday 16 August at 8pm

Phase 2 – Northbound lane closure for 16 days, starting Friday 16 August at 8pm to Saturday 31 August at 6am

Phase 3 – Full road closure for 15 days, starting Saturday 31 August at 6am to Saturday 14 September 2019 at 8pm

We encourage all drivers to follow the advised diversion route shown in the notification, which can be found hereWe have created a dedicated Breakspear Road South Closure page on our website here.

The closure will begin north of the Merck, Sharpe and Dohme entrance and end north of Gatesmead Farm. You can see a map of the closure and the diversion on this page here. Access will be maintained to residential properties at all times.

During the closure Newyears Green Lane will be access only from Breakspear Road South. To help alleviate and mitigate disruption, we will be installing additional signage at other local link roads. The advisory signage with a ‘No through route, please follow diversion’ message will be implemented on the following local roads

  • Long Lane
  • High Street
  • Eastcote Road
  • Duck Hill Road
  • Ladygate Lane
  • Sharps Lane

Master Brewer plans in context

Further to the earlier posting here’s some useful background for you:

Earlier this year the Council refused permission for the 437 home ‘Hillingdon Gateway’ development at Master Brewer, citing 10 reasons for refusal including unacceptable over-development. The Association is one of several local groups that have contributed to the creation of a Community Masterplan for Hillingdon Circus, which outlines what we want, bearing in mind the Council have allocated the area for mixed-use residential-led development. Details of the Community Masterplan are available here:

https://ickenhamplan.wordpress.com/2019/07/12/hillingdon-circus-update/

This will be subject to formal public consultation later this year as part of the emerging Ickenham Neighbourhood Plan.

Separately from the Community Masterplan process, the owners of the site are exhibiting plans for a different Master Brewer development on July 25th 4pm to 8pm. Their leaflet is reproduced again below:

Closure of Breakspear Road South – 20 July to 14 September

Posted on Jun 21st 2019 by HS2 in Hillingdon [[ Sorry for delay – I’ve been away ]]

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 and diversions affect both the public and the local community and will cause significant impacts on your journey plans.

Phase 1 – Full road closure for 28 days, starting Saturday 20 July at 6am to Friday 16 August at 8pm

Phase 2 – Northbound lane closure for 16 days, starting Friday 16 August at 8pm to Saturday 31 August at 6am

Phase 3 – Full road closure for 15 days, starting Saturday 31 August at 6am to Saturday 14 September 2019 at 8pm

We encourage all drivers to follow the advised diversion route shown in the notification, which can be found here. We have created a dedicated Breakspear Road South Closure page on our website 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. In order to complete the works as quickly as possible, we will be working 24 hours a day in the first two weeks and the final week of the closure.

While the various utilities providers are assisting HS2 to deliver the works required please be aware that should operational issues occur on their infrastructure network during the closure, then there is a risk that the utility works may be postponed to a later date as maintaining essential residential customer utilities supplies must take priority.

Harvil Road Injunction

On the 16 May 2019, the High Court granted an injunction to prevent protesters trespassing on HS2 land and obstructing access to HS2’s worksites at Harvil Road.

The court injunction is necessary to help us keep the public and our staff safe at our work sites. There have been numerous incidents of trespass and obstruction, including incidents where protesters have climbed onto vehicles, lay down in the path of vehicles and climbing underneath vehicles. All of which have the potential to cause serious injury and health and safety is HS2’s highest concern.

Please note that this injunction does not restrict activity on land that is not covered by the injunction, a map can be found here as well as more information about the injunction
