HS2 imminent activities

At the latest meeting with HS2, we raised with them the recent confusions over the use of the fields by the cricket club and asked that they significantly improve their communications with the community.

HS2 has now advised us of some forthcoming work. Two sites off Harvil Road will be required for gas pipeline diversions.  One site is before the railway bridge and the other after the bridge, close to the Dogs Trust. Initially the work will involve clearing the sites and then the contractors will move in and perform the work lasting to December 2018.  Harvil Road has accident black spots and it may be necessary to have traffic signals at the access points to both sites.

Flood report is in

Remember June 23rd last year? For some of you, it was less about the Referendum and more about the local flooding. The residents have spoken and experts have investigated. The .pdf report is 78.2MB. You can either download it using that link or go to the relevant LBH page at www.hillingdon.gov.uk/article/29022/Flood-risk-investigation

The quick way to find the local bits is to search for Ickenham. You’ll see all the reported incidents with a few of going into further detail with maps, actions taken, etc.

(I tried searching by road name but was less successful. I believe that Ivy House Road/Milton Road suffered quite badly but could find no details. Perhaps that one wasn’t 23rd June or may)

Anyway, if you’re interested, take a look. Maybe comment here – praise or criticism, we don’t mind.
