Please note that the TBM conveyor is due to come into operation by the end of February 2023. Until then, HS2 need to move more material away from the West Ruislip portal to allow the TBMs to continue their work. Some of this material will be temporarily stored on sites around the area. The material will be delivered to two locations:
– area north of the Chiltern Line, west of Breakspear Road South at site at Gate 2
– area south of the Copthall Covert at site at Gate 1 on Harvil Road

At present, the only way they can do this is by using lorries to transport the soil from the TBMs. As a result, there will be additional lorry movements on roads around West Ruislip. However, they will adhere to the total 550 movements per day in Hillingdon. The affected routes are Breakspear Road South crossing, Harvil Road, Swakeleys Road and Ickenham High Road. This means the route is from Swakeleys roundabout and Ickenham village to West Ruislip portal site, from there the material will be transported via the haul road at Breakspear Road South to gate 2 and 1 on Harvil Road.
