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

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
From 12 to 30 July 2021, we will be carrying out overnight surveys along Breakspear Road South and Harvil Road. This will help to inform our design decisions in the area.
• Breakspear Road South from 12 to 16 July
• Harvil Road from 26 to 30 July
Your utility services will not be affected.
Works are ongoing at our sites at Harvil Road and Newyears Green Lane to build the new road realignment, the Copthall Tunnels and the conveyor system. Some of these works will need to take place during extended working hours.
From 7 July until 31 October 2021, we will be extending our working hours on our sites and will be undertaking work on site from 7am to 6pm, Monday through Saturday. This is an extension of our core working hours of 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday and 8pm to 1pm on Saturdays.

What we are doing
From 6 to 20 July 2021, we will be carrying out ground investigation along Ickenham Road and High Road near the West Ruislip train station, in the area shown on the map link below. This will help to inform our design decisions in the area. The ground investigation will involve the use of scanning equipment to identify utilities in the area. We will be excavating trial holes to take measurements and ground samples.
How the surveys might affect you
Due to the location of the utility surveys, footpath diversion will be in place and the cycle path will be closed for the duration of these activities. This is to ensure that the surveys can be carried out safely.
There will be no disruption to your utility services.

We wrote you in April to advise you that we would be carrying out bored piling works at Breakspear Road South to facilitate the construction of overbridges at these locations. From Monday 21st of June, we will start the next phase of these works which will continue until the end of July.
We do not expect there to be any noise and vibration or disturbance to nearby residents. Monitoring will be in place throughout these works.
We have been informed that the London Borough of Hillingdon will have a full road closure at Breakspear Road South on Monday 14 June 2021, for one week to carry out resurfacing works from the south of the Chiltern Line bridge to Swakeleys junction.
As a result of these works, the SCS site team at Breakspear Road South have cancelled their works planned for next week. (Notice of works for the U46 footpath road crossing HS2-EW-SCS-Ph1-Ar-So-S1-Traf-33-14/06/2021)
Newyears Green Lane
We wrote to you recently to advise you that we would be carrying out ecological surveys on 17 May and 1 June along Newyears Green Lane. Due to poor weather conditions, we were unable to complete the surveys. We therefore require additional time to complete these works, which will now be completed on 1 and 14 June 2021. A road closure will be required between 8pm and 5am to ensure these works can be carried out safely.
We will be carrying out works over one weekend (19 & 20 June 2021) in the bell mouth where vehicles access the site from Ickenham High Road. We are connecting a foul sewer from site to a chamber that sits underneath the centre of the junction.
Once connected the trench will be backfilled and the work area reinstated. We will carry out the main cut into the concrete within normal working hours on the Friday 18 June, to minimise noise on the weekend
Duration of works
The weekend of 19 and 20 June 2021
From 8am to 6pm
What to expect
An excavator and dumper trucks will be required to create the trench for the sewer
What we will do
