Heavy loads arriving at West Ruislip in March

From HS2:

As part of the substation installation, we will have 2no. Electrical Voltage Transformers delivered to our site. These transformers will change the incoming voltage from 33kV down to 11kV so that we can eventually power the Tunnel Boring Machines at their required voltages.

Our transformers will be delivered at the weekend as they are coming directly from their delivery port, as they have been shipped from overseas. They are delivered through the night due to the load and will arrive at the West Ruislip portal in the morning in each instance. The works to install these transformers will be carried out across the following weekends:

Transformer 1 delivery: Saturday 13th March and Sunday 14th March 2021

Transformer 2 delivery: Saturday 27th March and Sunday 28th March 2021

At present, these dates are planned with our suppliers, however should there be any changes to the delivery due to freight passing the UK border we will update all residents and businesses accordingly.

If you have a question about HS2 or our works, please contact our HS2 Helpdesk team on 08081 434 434 or email hs2enquiries@hs2.org.uk.

HS2 Christmas break (sort of)

You will be pleased to hear that we have been advised by HS2 that SCS will shut down works in Hillingdon from 3pm on the 24 December until the morning of the 4 January 2021.

The only exception will be a delivery of diesel, and one small pump through at West Ruislip on either 29 or 30 December. These will involve one or two vehicles and a small number of operatives.

Other than that the only staff on site throughout the whole of the period will be the security personnel.

Enjoy the respite!
