Committee member Brian Adams summarises the current situation with Swakeleys Roundabout as follows:
The Transport for London (TfL) application, supported by HS2, to install traffic lights on Swakeleys roundabout has not been approved by the London Borough of Hillingdon. The TfL proposal did not appear to take the problems of the local road systems into account and the response to the consultation by residents was overwhelmingly against signalisation. The proposal did include improvements for pedestrians and cyclists and the London Borough of Hillingdon has proposed that TfL should proceed with these , particularly as there will be many HS2 HGVs using the roundabout when the Main Works construction takes place.

Here are some extracts from TfL’s ULEZ pages:
To help improve air quality, an Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) will be in place in central London from 8 April 2019. Most vehicles including cars and vans will need to meet new, tighter exhaust emission standards (ULEZ standards) or pay a daily charge to travel within the area of the ULEZ.
Charges for cars (if ULEZ standards NOT met):
Daily charge – ULEZ (Low): £12.50
Penalty charge: £160 (reduced to £80 if paid within 14 days)
From 25 October 2021, the ULEZ area will be expanded to include the inner London area bounded by the North and South Circular Roads.
Check your own car’s liability
Worth noting that the North and South Circular Roads are themselves outside the zone.

I thought it was time I flushed out the rejected and accepted appeals. Map link.
HS2 in Hillingdon reports:
Work is required to complete the diversion of an Affinity water main. The nature of the work means that it can only be carried out under a northbound lane closure of Breakspear Road South.
The work will start on Monday 7 January and will last until Wednesday 16 January and will be working 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Traffic management with temporary traffic lights will be put into place to allow traffic to continue to use the road during this time. Further information can be found here.
