LM on behalf of HS2 – Notice of extended working hours on and around Northway Island from 21 September

Click on link above.

High Speed Two (HS2) is the new high speed railway for Britain. Early
works for HS2 are being carried out by a joint venture between Laing
O’Rourke and Murphy & Sons, known as LM. In your area, we are working
near the A452, A45 and M42, which surround the site of the future HS2
Interchange Station.
We’re improving the local road network
During 2020, we are improving and expanding sections of the existing
road network in the area, and constructing new routes on HS2 land,
which will connect to four new highway bridges. These road
improvements will ensure that when the future station is operational, the
local road network is fit for purpose.
Earlier in the month, we had stated that we would be undertaking this
programme during restricted daytime hours. As traffic movements in the
area remain low, some of our traffic measures will now remain in place
24-hours. We expect that the impact of extended working hours on road
users is likely to remain low, however if traffic movements increase
substantially, restricted working hours will be reintroduced.
We’ll extend our working hours from 21 September
To carry out our continued works safely, single lane closures will remain
in place on and around Northway Island. Our working hours will be 7am
to 6pm, but some traffic measures will remain in place 24-hours. We will
work Monday to Friday, however we may extend our works into the
weekend if required. Most of our traffic measures will be located on
Northway and remain in place 24-hours (see map on next page).
HS2 during the coronavirus pandemic
We are continually reviewing the works on our construction sites in line
with Government and Public Health England (PHE) advice on dealing with
coronavirus. The Government’s current coronavirus strategy makes clear
that construction activity can continue as long as it complies with this
guidance. Please be assured that those sites that are currently still
working are doing so because they can operate within PHE and
construction industry guidelines.
