Traffic Management – Wood End Lane

Published 9 October 2021

Traffic management Wood End Lane, Fradley
As part of our continuing activity ahead of the construction of the railway we’re letting you know about some planned works that we will be carrying out in your area.
We will be creating a new site entrance to our compound and haul road. This work will include preparation of the road edges and laying of new kerb stones. We will also be carrying out utility trial trenching, along Wood End Lane, which will involve digging into the ground to establish what is underneath the surface. This will provide us with information on the location of underground utilities, which we need to assess as we develop our construction plans.
These works will take place from 25 October – 11 November
Our working hours will be:
  • Daytime: 8:00am to 6:00pm for the access road construction, a lane closure with temporary traffic lights on Wood End Lane and Netherstowe Lane.
  • Overnight: 8:00pm to 6:00am for the survey works, this is a road closure of Wood End Lane with a diversion.
Our workforce can be on site one hour before and after to set up and take our work equipment.
There will be no weekend working. Businesses will be open as usual.
We’re committed to keeping you informed about the planning and delivery of the railway in your area with regular updates on progress.
If you have a question about HS2 or our works, please contact our HS2 Helpdesk team on 08081 434 434 or email hs2enquiries@hs2.org.uk.

S2 Notifications: archaeological surveys in Great Haywood, Stafford

Published 1 October 2021

S2 Notifications: archaeological surveys in Great Haywood, Stafford
As part of our continuing activity ahead of the construction of the railway, we’re letting you know about some planned works that we will be carrying out in your area.
Working on behalf of HS2 Ltd, National Grid is legally required to move a number of overhead electricity lines, pylons and gas pipelines along the HS2 route to allow for the build and operation of the new railway. The new HS2 railway will pass above one of our existing gas pipelines at Great Haywood. Around January 2022, we’ll divert this pipeline so it can continue to operate safely and reliably.
Our contractor, Wardell Armstrong, will be in Great Haywood around mid-October to carry out archaeological surveys which will help inform the design for the diversion.
A team of up to 15 people, with around eight vehicles and equipment including an excavator, mobile water tank and welfare units, will carry out the work. Neighbours may notice some minimal background noise from the excavator.
We expect it’ll take around eight to ten weeks to complete. None of our work will affect gas supplies.
We don’t expect to close roads or to install temporary traffic lights while we carry out the surveys. We’ll keep you updated if anything changes.
Our core working hours will be 8am to 6pm on weekdays (excluding bank holidays) and 8am to 1pm on Saturdays. Except in the case of an emergency, any work required to be undertaken outside of core hours (not including repairs or maintenance) will be agreed with the local authority.
If you have a question about HS2 or our works, please contact our HS2 Helpdesk team on 08081 434 434 or email hs2enquiries@hs2.org.uk.
