Notice of Public Right of Way closures, Radstone, Halse and Greatworth

June 2022 | www.hs2.org.uk

High Speed Two (HS2) is the new high speed railway for Britain. We are following Government and Public Health England (PHE) advice on working safely during the pandemic. The health and safety of our workforce and the communities we work within is our priority. If you have any questions about this, please contact our Helpdesk to find out more. All sites will remain under constant review. You can sign up for regular updates in your local area at www.hs2innorthants.co.uk.

What are we doing?

As part of our preparatory works and for the safety of the public, we will be closing some Public Rights of Way (PRoWs) in the area between Radstone, Halse and Greatworth.

These closures are required to support the construction of our

internal site access road as well as our bulk earthworks and excavations.

Where possible, we will only close a section of a PRoW. However, there may be instances where will need to close the entire length. PRoWs which are located close to or that cross the construction sites, must be closed and diverted. This is in the interest of safety for all users of these PRoWs.

Our team have looked at a number of ways in which diversions could be introduced. However, due to reasons of safety as well as the programme of works, it is not possible because the PRoWs cross the HS2 line of route.

The following PRoWs will be closed in June:

• AX-7

• AX-19

• AN-19

• AN-28

We will also be closing the following bridleway in June:

• AN37

Duration of works

Public Right of Way (PRoW) closures will commence Monday 20 June 2022

What to expect

Varied activities with both quiet and busier periods. PRoW closures. Noise from plant and equipment used for the works.

What we will do

Manage any environmental impacts, such as traffic and noise. Respond promptly to any complaints and take appropriate action. Take care to respect the community. Install and maintain local signs to inform people of temporary closures and diversions.

When will these works take place?

The closure of the PRoWs will commence from Monday 20 June 2022. Closure notices for these PRoWs will be signposted. These PRoWs are expected to be reopened in January 2025.
