As you will have realised, the previous announcement from HS2 proved to be incorrect. We now have an update on the temporary traffic lights. Work starts on Monday 12th March.
The link is https://hs2inhillingdon.commonplace.is/news/2018/03/09/update-on-lane-closure-on-breakspear-road-south
This is at the heart of the message:
A northbound lane closure would be required during March on Breakspear Road South to enable the set-up of a construction compound. These works are set to commence on Monday 12th March for a period of up to three weeks. Two way traffic lights will be utilised to ensure that traffic flow is maintained in the area. The traffic lights will be in operation 24 hours a day but will be manually operated at peak times (07:00 – 10:00 and 15:00 – 18:00) to enable disruption to be minimised and alleviate pressure on the network.
Our MP’s information on the HS2 injunction against the ‘camp’ is helpful. Other stuff too – Heathrow expansion stuff. And more…
Ruislip Against HS2 (and others, including our own HS2 sub-committee) would be very interested in your views of various sources of information on developments, now and in the future. The survey also asks a couple of questions about your general awareness.
If you can spare a few moments to check a page of ten multiple boxes, it could help them frame a more effective approach to keeping our local communities informed.
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.
