HS2 have decided to close Breakspear Road South from 31 May for 8 weeks
This is despite vehement local opposition, at least requesting that the works get delayed until the summer holidays. Despite our requests and protests over the last 7 months, they have decided to cause maximum disruption during school exam times, and one of the busiest traffic periods of the year. The council are also against this closure, but the HS2 act of parliament means that HS2 can override both our, and the council’s, wishes.
The dates are:
- Phase 1: Full road closure for 27 days, starting Friday 31 May at 6am to Thursday 27 June at 8pm.
- Phase 2: Northbound lane closure for 17 days, starting Thursday 27 June at 8pm to Friday 12 July at 6am.
- Phase 3: Full road closure for 16 days, starting Friday 12 July at 6am to Sunday 28 July at 8pm.
