We wrote to you in June to advise you that we would be starting the next phase of the bored piles installation at Breakspear Road South from 21 June to 31 July. However, we will require additional time to complete these works which will continue until 6 August 2021.
We will also be installing sheet piles within our site compound at the same time.
HS2 and our contractors SCSJV will be holding an online information event on Thursday 29 July from 3pm to 5pm to share our designs of the Copthall Tunnel, between Breakspear Road South and Harvil Road, as well as the Northern Sustainable Placement Areas, located off Newyears Green Lane.

A little bit of good news. We received this today from LBH
Permission given for judicial review Hillingdon Council was given permission by the High Court on Wednesday 21 July to proceed with its judicial review of the Mayor of London’s decision to grant planning permission for the former Master Brewer site. This means that the High Court is satisfied that the council has an arguable case. The hearing of the case in the High Court is expected to take place later this year.
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.

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.
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.
We have been informed that the London Borough of Hillingdon will have a full road closure at Breakspear Road South on Monday 14 June 2021, for one week to carry out resurfacing works from the south of the Chiltern Line bridge to Swakeleys junction.
As a result of these works, the SCS site team at Breakspear Road South have cancelled their works planned for next week. (Notice of works for the U46 footpath road crossing HS2-EW-SCS-Ph1-Ar-So-S1-Traf-33-14/06/2021)
Newyears Green Lane We wrote to you recently to advise you that we would be carrying out ecological surveys on 17 May and 1 June along Newyears Green Lane. Due to poor weather conditions, we were unable to complete the surveys. We therefore require additional time to complete these works, which will now be completed on 1 and 14 June 2021. A road closure will be required between 8pm and 5am to ensure these works can be carried out safely.
West Ruislip We will be carrying out works over one weekend (19 & 20 June 2021) in the bell mouth where vehicles access the site from Ickenham High Road. We are connecting a foul sewer from site to a chamber that sits underneath the centre of the junction.
Once connected the trench will be backfilled and the work area reinstated. We will carry out the main cut into the concrete within normal working hours on the Friday 18 June, to minimise noise on the weekend
Duration of works The weekend of 19 and 20 June 2021 From 8am to 6pm
What to expect An excavator and dumper trucks will be required to create the trench for the sewer
What we will do Maintain access along the footpath and carriageway of Ickenham High Road
