A Rare Opportunity – High Speed 2 Stops at Aston le Walls

Representatives from HS2 and their contractors will be coming to Aston le Walls Village Hall on Wednesday 23rd May from 6.00pm.

Representatives will be present from:

  • HS2
  • Fusion, who have been awarded the HS2 contract for preparatory groundworks
  • Eiffage Kier, who are constructing the line

From 6.00pm until 7.30pm there will be the opportunities to see information boards and discuss one to one with representatives.

At 7.30pm presentations will be made followed by a Questions and Answers session.

The planning work for HS2 is now well underway. The HS2 team have been planning visits to most of the closely affected villages and now it is the turn of Aston le Walls.

Whilst accepting that the new high-speed railway is finally going to be built, here is a chance to come and talk to the HS2 team to see how and when it will be done. They have spent a lot of time in this area recently and have developed a good appreciation of traffic movements, local worries about difficult road junctions, concerns about road/footpath closures and nervousness about noise during the construction process.

We will discover their latest view on how much impact all of this is likely to have on the residents of our Parish.

This event has been organised by the Parish Council for members of the community to hear the latest developments.

It is an open meeting and everyone is welcome to attend; look out for the reminder flyer in your letter box. Do please come along to hear the latest news on how the building of HS2 will affect you.

A date for your Diary –Wednesday 23rd May 6.00pm until 9:00pm
