Following our protest and the subsequent delay to the closure of Breakspear Road South, HS2 have announced new dates for the closure.
The new start date of the closure is Saturday 20 July. The closure will run over 8 weeks as follows – 4 weeks full closure, 2 weeks single lane closure, 2 further weeks full closure. This will mean that the majority of the closure will take place within the school holidays, but given the duration of the works it will run into the first two weeks of the new school term.
Affinity Water are a key part of this closure during the summer, but they have been very open that should weather conditions result in hot, dry months over July and August there is a risk that the works may be postponed.
