Catalytic converter thefts

WARNING!!!!

Your vehicle could be at risk

Catalytic converter thieves are active in Ickenham

They target HYBRID versions of TOYOTA  AURIS, TOYOTA PRIUS and also HONDA JAZZ, HONDA CR-V and LEXUS RX

If you see any suspicious activities please call 999 immediately

To reduce the risk of having your catalytic converter stolen, you should:

  • Park your car in a locked garage where possible, but if this isn’t an option, then park it in a well-lit and well-populated area
  • Park close to fences, walls or a kerb with the exhaust being closest to the fence, wall or kerb to make the theft more difficult
  • Avoid parking your vehicle half on the pavement and half on the road, as this may make it easier for thieves to access the catalytic converter
  • If parking in a public car park, consider parking alongside other cars and facing you bonnet towards the wall if possible. With the catalytic converter positioned at the front of your vehicle, this will make it harder for thieves to get close enough to steal it
  • If there is a fleet of vehicles, park the low clearance vehicles to block the high clearance vehicles. This will obstruct access underneath
  • If your catalytic converter is bolted on, you can ask for your local garage to weld the bolts to make it more difficult to remove.
  • Alternatively, you can also etch a serial number on the converter
  • You can even purchase a ‘cage clamp’ which is a cage device that locks in around the converter to make it more difficult to remove
  • Speak to your dealership about the possibility of adding a tilt sensor that will activate the alarm should any thief try to jack the vehicle up to steal the converter  

If you see someone acting suspiciously under a vehicle, report it to the Police.

Affinity Water installing water meters

We thought you’d like to know that letters from Affinity Water are being distributed to warn that properties without water meters are going to have them installed. This is not a scam and it’s not an option. Here’s the relevant bit of the text:

“Your meter will be fitted free of charge and you can continue paying on a non-metered basis for up to two years after we fit it. During this year, we’ll send you information on how much water you’re using, with handy tips on saving water and money. You can switch to metered billing early at any point, please contact us on 0345 357 2403 You will automatically be switched to metered billing two years after your meter is installed.”

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.
