Somehow this petition has slipped through almost unnoticed. It will run only until the 24th April. It needs to get to 10,000 signatures to get to a Government response or, at 100,000, it might get a parliamentary debate.’ So, if you agree with the proposal, please sign it, if you haven’t already done so. Please pass the link on to everyone you can think of. Thanks!
We call on the Government to abandon the HS2 Rail project:

One of the Committee members received this from NCP – the operators of the station car park:
The grace period at this site is 15 minutes.
Our car park Management team have confirmed they will have signage put up at the entrance; however, there is no Pick-up and Drop off area within the car park.
So, if you’re picking people up, don’t hang around more than 15 minutes.
Report from Brian Adams following HS2 Traffic Liaison meeting with LBH:
The following is our latest understanding of the works taking place locally which will impact travelling. Some of the programmes are still being discussed and there may be changes to durations and dates.
9 – 10 Chiltern Line is closed between Marylebone and High Wycombe for HS2 works
11- 17 Creation of new access to HS2 West Ruislip construction site which will result in closure of northbound cycle lane and pavement (opposite road to West Ruislip station car park)
11- 17 Harvil Road will be closed to enable repairs to the railway bridge (Note: this is a Network Rail programme not HS2)
HS2 Test pilings for the viaduct will be made in West Hyde, off Harvil Road (and possibly Moorhall Road). This will create HGV movements in Harvil Road, Swakeleys Road and Swakeleys roundabout. The peak HGV movement is anticipated to be 300 per day.
May – July
HS2 closure of Breakspear Road South for 8 weeks. Currently scheduled to start 24 May but community concern over impact to students taking examinations may lead to change.
HS2 Tunnel Boring Machine power supply
This programmes is still under discussion but HS2 has proposed a route. This can be seen in this map (PowerPoint). Initially there will be test trenches but once the programme proceeds it will take place over a year. We are advised that one lane will always remain open and no resident will have works in front of their house for more than 4 weeks.
RAF Resurfacing of Northolt runway
There will be HGV movements but we do not yet have details of routes or numbers.
HS2 Main Works
We await details of the HGV movements.
This is the latest:
Planned Breakspear Road South road closure UPDATE
Posted on Jan 31st 2019 by HS2 in Hillingdon
We had previously made you aware through other works notifications of our plans for a full eight week road closure of Breakspear Road South that was due to take place in February. This has now been rescheduled to take place during the summer. We will let you know the exact dates once they have been agreed and confirmed.
The proposed 8-week closure of Breakspear Road South will not take place at the end of February. Dates yet to be finalised but could be 24 May start.
Test Piling by contractors at sites in Harvil Road, A412 and possibly Moorhall Road will create peak HGV movements at Swakeleys Roundabout, Swakeleys Road and Harvil Road of 300 per day during March and April.
