HS2 Planned Works

Update on gas main diversion works in Harefield – Posted on Dec 13th 2019 by HS2 in Hillingdon

Work has been underway to move two gas pipelines in the Harefield area, to facilitate HS2’s construction and to continue to ensure a safe and reliable gas supply to the area.
Cadent has now successfully completed the diversion for the first of these pipelines, and has ceased work over winter.

Cadent will need to return to the northern site off Harvil Road next year to complete the second diversion.

We don’t yet have the details for when this work will be carried out, but we’ll make sure people are aware in advance.

In the meantime, you may see other work being carried out on behalf of HS2 around Harvil Road. For more information:

HS2 Works Notification: Utility Surveys and Ground Investigations in the Colne Valley, January to July 2020 – Posted on Dec 13th 2019 by HS2 in Hillingdon

As part of the preparation works for the construction of the Colne Valley Viaduct we will be continuing to carry out some initial works in your area which will help us develop our plans for construction.

Ground Investigations
These works will be taking place on sites using existing access routes off Moorhall Road, Harvil Road and Dews Lane. Some locations in Korda Lake and in Savay Lake will be conducted from floating pontoons. We will be working extended hours on the lakes, Monday to Sunday 7am to 7pm.
To provide enough room for our equipment to access the areas where we will be working, we will have to carry out tree removal, clearance of shrubs and other low-lying vegetation in the vicinity of the works.

Utility Surveys next to Moorhall Road
We also need to conduct a survey of the utility services that run through this area. This will be done by hand-excavators to protect the services. We will be working next to Moorhall Road with protection barriers for the safety of our staff. There will be no road or lane closures.

HS2 Works Notification: Utility Surveys and Ground Investigations in Ruislip area, January 2020 – Posted on Dec 13th 2019 by HS2 in Hillingdon

As part of the preparation works for the construction of HS2 we will be continuing to carry out some initial works in your area which will help us develop our plans for construction.

Ground Investigations

HS2 will be carrying out ground investigations work next to the railway line in Ruislip in three locations from early January 2020.

This involves drilling down to retrieve a small core of the ground. To do this we use drilling rigs which are small enough to be towed by an off-road vehicle.

The first site will be in Ruislip Rugby Club, from 6 January for up to four weeks.

The second site will be in Bridgewater Road Recreation Ground from 20 January for up to four weeks. This is a change of date from a previous notice.

The third site will be West Ruislip Car Park from 6 January for up to four weeks.

Further details can be found in the attached notifications:

Utility Surveys

We also need to conduct surveys of the utility services in the Ruislip area across five locations.

Scanning equipment will be used to create a map of the utility services below ground and they will be marked using biodegradable spray paint. We will use cameras to take site photos of the work completed.

The first site will be in Bridgewater Road, South Ruislip from 6 January.

The second site will be on Long Lane and station Approach from 6 January.

The third site will be on Ickenham Road from 6 January.

The forth site will be in the Great Central Avenue area from 6 January.

The fifth site will be in the West End Road area from 6 January.

All of these locations will last for a short period of time for short periods across a three month period.
