HS2 Works Notification: Road closure, Helmdon Road, Greatworth 

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

As our preparations continue for the Greatworth Green tunnel, we need to remove small areas of vegetation along Helmdon Road, Greatworth. This work will take approximately 2 weeks to complete.

By carrying out this work in the winter we will minimise the risks of disturbing nesting birds. Prior to any vegetation removal, an ecologist will complete a detailed survey of the area to be cleared. Any protected species found to be present will be recorded and the vegetation will be left undisturbed with the appropriate buffer zone established.

For the safety of road users and our staff, we are required to close Helmdon Road during the day, 8am to 6pm, from Monday 13 February to Sunday 26 February 2023.
