Easter HS2 at West Ruislip

OFROM HS2

We wrote you in December last year to let you know about our 24/7 assembly works for the tunnel boring machine.
 
These works will be carried out during the Easter period, including Sunday and the bank holidays. The works will include steel fixing, lifting operations, concrete pours, formwork installation and deliveries.

We would like to apologise in advance for working over the holiday period and for any inconvenience this may cause. Every effort is being taken to ensure that these works are carried out in the least impactful way. 
 
We will ensure that disruption is kept to a minimum.

HS2 Works Notification: Easter Network Rail possession  

We’re writing to let you know about some planned works that we will be carrying out in your area.   Between Saturday 16 April and Monday 18 April, we will be installing a bridge over the Chiltern Rail line between Wendover and Great Missenden for the construction of our conveyor.

For reasons of safety, these works will require the full closure of the Chiltern rail line over Easter. Our workforce will be working 24-hours a day between those times.   

To maintain connectivity the rail operator will be running a bus replacement during this time.   Please see details of the works here:

What works are taking place?
In order to construct the railway, we need to supply electricity to our compounds and work sites. SSEN will be working in your area to upgrade the local electricity network so these supplies can be provided.

Starting on 21 March SSEN will begin works to install a high voltage underground cable as part of planned upgrade works along Copthall Road West. We expect these works to last for six weeks. Works will
