HS2 Works Notification: Preparatory works for the Small Dean Viaduct, Wendover

We’re writing to let you know about some planned works that we will be carrying out in your area.

As part of our continued preparatory works for the construction of the Small Dean Viaduct we need to undertake the following activities:

  • Completion of the sheet piling on the Chiltern Line
    • Demolition of the footbridge over the Chiltern Line
    • Vegetation and further site clearance in the Small Dean area

We need to install sheet piles adjacent to the existing rail line near Small Dean Lane. These works are vital to protect and secure the network rail line during the construction of the viaduct over the A413 London Road.

We will also be carrying out the demolition of a foot bridge over the Chiltern Rail line in the Small Dean area as this will be in the path of where the Small Dean Viaduct will cross the A413.

These works can only be done under Network Rail possession of the rail line and section of Small Dean Lane will be closed whilst these works take place.

We will be working 24 hours a day from midnight on Saturday 25 December until 4.00am Wednesday 29 December. Work will then resume, 24 hours a day from 1.00am on Saturday 1 January to 1.00am Monday 3 January. We will aim to get the work completed as quickly as possible.
