West Ruislip concrete breaking trials

From HS2:

At the West Ruislip site, we will be carrying out a 5-day trial of a machine that breaks down concrete into smaller reusable parts.

If this trial is successful, it will mean that the number of lorry movements required to transport concrete to and from site will be reduced and will remove a significant number of lorries from local roads.

U46 Footpath Diversion

from HS2

The U46 footpath diversion

We are progressing to a stage in our works where we will be diverting a number of footpaths. These works will facilitate the completion of the internal haul road and help to keep as many vehicles off local roads as possible. Our first diversion is the U46 footpath, the short footpath that runs from the Celandine Way to Breakspear Road South near Oak Farm. The surface of U43 has been improved and extended and it currently progresses south behind the trees and emerges at a marked crossing point in Breakspear Road South. Please see map on link below.

Ickenham Road and High Road works 6 to 20 July 2021

From HS2

Work item details

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.
