Just found this interactive map from LBH that shows conservation areas and tree preservation order areas. Type Swakeleys House into the search box, close the Legend box and you get a decent zoomable map of the Ickenham conservation area and beyond.
HS2 ‘ Early Works’ programme to create a construction site for the bridge over Breakspear Road South requires northbound lane closures on this road north of the Chiltern line bridge. These are planned to take place in January 2018 (3 weeks) and May/June 2018 ( 6 weeks)….we have asked that they do not take place at same time as lane closures on Harvil Road so these dates may change slightly. There will be traffic light controls.
A note from HS2:
Please note that the scope of works for the utility surveys has changed. The works were originally intended to be utility trial trenches. However we have been able to change these works to Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) surveys and pavement cores, which will be less disruptive as they can be completed in a shorter time span and are less intrusive. The works will still take place within the half term window but from Friday 27 October to Sunday 29 October.
GPR uses radar pulses to create a profile of what the ground looks like beneath the surface, including the presence of voids which indicate the presence of utilities. Pavement core involves coring a small piece of the road and sending it for examination and laboratory testing to determine its make-up.
We apologise for the change to what we previously notified you about and any inconvenience this may cause.
HS2 has a website dedicated to Hillingdon. It explains the background to the project and what HS2 will be doing to ameliorate its impact on us. It invites questions from the public and will publish its responses (presumably, to the questions it wants to answer).
The Green Party and fellow activists are protesting about HS2 ripping out trees in Harefield. Five of them have spent the night under a digger, to prevent further damage and an eventual environmental catastrophe for Harefield and surrounding areas.
While the Ickenham Residents’ Association avoids political positioning, we feel that this ongoing story may interest many of our members. To keep track of what’s going on please check in with Get West London.
Apologies for lack of detail but this is the area to the north of The Greenway and Hoylake Crescent. Each blob appears to be a bore hole as described in the previous news update. If I get more information, I’ll add it to this post.
