Pick-up Parking at Ickenham Station

One of the Committee members received this from NCP – the operators of the station car park:

The grace period at this site is 15 minutes.

Our car park Management team have confirmed they will have signage put up at the entrance; however, there is no Pick-up and Drop off area within the car park.

So, if you’re picking people up, don’t hang around more than 15 minutes.

 

Travel impacts of HS2 and other programmes

Report from Brian Adams following HS2 Traffic Liaison meeting with LBH:

The following is our latest understanding of the works taking place locally which will impact travelling. Some of the programmes are still being discussed and there may be changes to durations and dates.

February

9 – 10   Chiltern Line is closed between Marylebone and High Wycombe for HS2 works

11- 17   Creation of new access to HS2 West Ruislip construction site  which will result in closure of northbound cycle lane and pavement (opposite road to West Ruislip station car park)

March

11- 17    Harvil Road will be closed to enable repairs to the railway bridge (Note: this is a Network Rail programme not HS2)

March -April

HS2 Test pilings for the viaduct will be made in West Hyde, off Harvil Road (and possibly Moorhall Road). This will create  HGV movements in Harvil Road, Swakeleys Road and Swakeleys roundabout.  The peak HGV movement is anticipated to be 300 per day.

May – July

HS2 closure of Breakspear Road South for 8 weeks. Currently scheduled to start 24 May but community concern over impact to students taking examinations may lead to change.

HS2 Tunnel Boring Machine power supply

This programmes is still under discussion but HS2 has proposed a route. This can be seen in this map (PowerPoint). Initially there will be test trenches but once the programme proceeds it will take place over a year. We are advised that one lane will always remain open and no resident will have works in front of their house for more than 4 weeks.

RAF Resurfacing of Northolt runway

There will be HGV movements but we do not yet have details of routes or numbers.

HS2 Main Works

We await details of the HGV movements.

Breakspear Road South closure (again)

This is the latest:

Planned Breakspear Road South road closure UPDATE

Posted on Jan 31st 2019 by HS2 in Hillingdon

We had previously made you aware through other works notifications of our plans for a full eight week road closure of Breakspear Road South that was due to take place in February. This has now been rescheduled to take place during the summer. We will let you know the exact dates once they have been agreed and confirmed.

 

Local HS2 traffic movements update

The proposed 8-week closure of Breakspear Road South will not take place at the end  of February. Dates yet to be finalised but could be 24 May start.

Test Piling by contractors at sites in Harvil Road, A412 and possibly Moorhall Road will create peak HGV movements at Swakeleys Roundabout, Swakeleys Road and Harvil Road of  300 per day during March and April.

 

Swakeleys Roundabout modifications update

Committee member Brian Adams summarises the current situation with Swakeleys Roundabout as follows:

The Transport for London (TfL) application, supported by HS2, to install traffic lights on Swakeleys roundabout has not been approved by the London Borough of Hillingdon. The TfL proposal did not appear to take the problems of the  local road systems into account and the response to the consultation by residents was overwhelmingly against signalisation. The proposal did include improvements for pedestrians and cyclists and the London Borough of Hillingdon has proposed that TfL should proceed with these , particularly as there will be many HS2 HGVs using the roundabout when the Main Works construction takes place.
