HS2 Works Update: New works and works restarting in Hillingdon

Posted on Apr 27th 2020 by HS2 in Hillingdon

We are working closely with our construction partners to review the works on all our construction sites in line with Government and Public Health England (PHE) advice on dealing with Covid-19. The Government’s current Covid-19 strategy makes clear that construction activity can continue as long as it complies with this guidance, which you can see by clicking here.

The below works are going ahead as our contractors are confident that they can operate in line with PHE and industry guidance, protecting our staff and the communities in which they are working.

Work on A412 and Moorhall Road

HS2 will be restarting a range of works just outside the London Borough of Hillingdon, including a temporary off-peak lane closure on the A412, near the Denham Water-Ski Club entrance. This is to allow for site set-up, archaeological and ecological works to take place including around Broadwater Lake. We will also be undertaking some work along Moorhall Road.

Dews Lane and Harvil Road area

Works have restarted at the compound to the west of Harvil Road and South of Dews Lane.

HS2 Land from Ruislip Golf Course to Breakspear Road South and Harvil Road

The U42 Bridleway diversion at Breakspear Road South is now open for public use.

Overnight works on the Chiltern lines in South Ruislip

We will be placing some monitoring equipment along the Chiltern Line and Central Line railways to ensure our construction does not impact on the lines. As all the equipment is self-powered there will be no need for any wires or cables to be placed in the area.

Works will comply with all safety rules with regard to working within the rail and tube environment. This being the case the work will take place from 00:01 to 08:00 in the early morning of Sunday 3 May. We will only use hand tools to reduce any noise impact.

 

HS2 Updates galore

HS2 Works Notification: Gas Main Diversion off Harvil Road and other works starting this week

Posted on Apr 14th 2020 by HS2 in Hillingdon

We are continuing to work closely with our construction partners to review the works on our construction sites in line with Government and Public Health England (PHE) advice on dealing with COVID-19. The Government’s current COVID-19 strategy makes clear that construction activity should continue as long as it complies with this guidance.

The below works are going ahead as our contractors are confident that they can operate in line with PHE and industry guidance, protecting our staff and the communities in which they are working.

Gas Main Diversion off Harvil Road

Following a winter shutdown period, Cadent is returning to its former compound off Harvil Road to complete work on the gas main diversion that it started last year. Works start this week and we expect work to be completed by June 2020. You can read more in this notification here.

Ruislip Golf Course

Delivery of aggregate to site will start from Wednesday 15 April, during usual working hours (8am to 6pm Monday to Friday and 8am to 1pm on Saturdays)

Land from Ruislip Golf Course to Breakspear Road South and Harvil Road

Surveys of land within HS2 sites and site hoarding from Tuesday 14 April.

Dews Lane and Harvil Road area

We are maintaining a security presence at their sites on Dews Lane and Harvil Road area. To enable this to continue there will be occasional deliveries to the sites of fuel and sanitation equipment. Servicing of welfare facilities and emptying of cess tanks will also take place.

Update on Completion of Work at Ruislip Rugby Club

We wish to update you on the current position with regards to the fields at Ruislip Rugby Club. Whilst the investigatory works within the fields have finished, we faced particularly difficult conditions due to the amount of rain that fell throughout January and February, water-logging the soil.

While we used matting to protect the fields as much as we could, some ruts occurred due to the movement of the vehicles and indeed the removal of the matting itself. We had been waiting for the ground to dry out sufficiently so that we could flatten out the area to remove the ruts that were left, however due to COVID-19 we paused activities at this site.

We are continuing to work closely with our construction partners to review the works on our construction sites in line with Government and Public Health England (PHE) advice on dealing with COVID-19. The Government’s current COVID-19 strategy makes clear that construction activity should continue as long as it complies with this guidance.

Our contractor is keenly aware of the need to finish the work at the club and we do fully appreciate that at this time many families are using the fields as the venue for their daily exercise. Please be assured that as soon as we are able to do so safely, we will return to the club and return the fields to their former condition.

HS2 changes mind about BRS closure

HS2 Works Update: Lane Closure on Breakspear Road South rescheduled 20 February to 22 February 2020

Posted on Feb 18th 2020 by HS2 in Hillingdon

The planned lane closure on Breakspear Road South we told you about last week has had to be postponed.

We will be rescheduling these works for later this week, Thursday 20 February to Saturday 22 February.

Please accept our apologies for any disruption these changes have caused. We are providing shorter notice than usual as there is an opportunity to undertake this work during the school half term period, which will lessen the disruption the lane-closure may cause.
