HS2 update

FROM HS2:  As part of their ongoing pledge to keeping communities informed about the planning and delivery of the HS2 project, HS2 are introducing a number of improvements to how they share information with you.

This is a reminder that we’re moving your local website within the HS2 website

This summer we will be moving the contents of this website over to the ‘In your area’ section of the main HS2 website. We are also changing the way that we issue email updates about the project and giving you more choice about how you would like to receive information from us.

We have published local community landing pages for each section of the route between London, the West Midlands and Crewe. These provide information about the HS2 route within each area. Over the coming weeks we will be adding further pages and information to each area.

We are aiming to complete this exercise next month (July) and will write to you again to confirm this nearer the time.

Join the HS2 mailing list to continue to receive updates from HS2 about the project

We will no longer be using this website or Commonplace to issue email updates to you. Instead, we are asking that you sign up to receive information from HS2 directly. We will continue to produce regular updates about the project, including notifications of our upcoming works, how it’s being constructed and what we’re doing to make it less disruptive.

If you would like to continue to receive updates from HS2 you can sign up for email notifications at engagement.hs2.org.uk/join-mailing-list. We will ask you to confirm your email address as part of the sign-up process.

The personal information you provide will be handled in accordance with current data protection legislation and only used for the purposes for which you have provided it.

Find out more about what we will do to keep your information safe in our Personal information charter.

Contact us if you have any questions

If you have any questions about these changes or would like some help signing up to receive email updates from us please contact our HS2 Helpdesk team, available all day, every day on 08081 434 434 or email hs2enquiries@hs2.org.uk

HS2 works update

HS2 and UK Power Networks have advised as follows:

UK Power Networks works in the highway

During the start of the Covid-19 outbreak, UK Power Networks, in conjunction with both Harrow and Hillingdon London Boroughs, prioritised work at road junctions due to vehicle numbers being significantly reduced in the area. Works are nearly complete for the duct installation. We are now moving into the joint bay works.

Joint Bays and Cable Pulling starting feb 2021

Latest updates at https://hs2inhillingdon.commonplace.is/proposals/tunnel-boring-machine-power-supply-route

Once these works for installing ducts are complete, we will have to come back at 14 locations across the route to install our cable. The places we will be revisiting will be approximately 50m in length each and will be there around a month at a time. The planned start date is February 2021 in Harrow and we will work towards Hillingdon opening two joint bays at a time to allow for the cable pull between the two. These works area planned to continue until June 2021.

Letter drops will be provided for affected residents and businesses in the area.

At present we are carrying out 11kV cable pulling works in Clacks Lane in order to power the site supplies for the UK Power Networks substation and SCS welfare at the West Ruislip TBM portal. These works will allow a number of the generators on site to be removed.

The joint bays can be found at the these locations. Planned dates for 2021 are below:














Transformer deliveries – West Ruislip TBM Portal
As part of the substation installation, we will have 2no. Electrical Voltage Transformers delivered to our site. These transformers will change the incoming voltage from 33kV down to 11kV so that we can eventually power the Tunnel Boring Machines at their required voltages.

Our transformers will be delivered at the weekend as they are coming directly from their delivery port, as they have been shipped from overseas. They are delivered through the night due to the load and will arrive at the West Ruislip portal in the morning in each instance. The works to install these transformers will be carried out across the following weekends:

Transformer 1 delivery: Saturday 13th March and Sunday 14th March 

Transformer 2 delivery: Saturday 27th March and Sunday 28th March

At present, these dates are planned with our suppliers, however should there be any changes to the delivery due to freight passing the UK border we will update all residents and businesses accordingly.
