HS2 Construction: closures and diversions

Temporary rights of way route closures and diversions will start in January 2018 and last for at least 7 to 8 years.

These will include preparation works such as:

  • environmental mitigation
  • archaeology
  • installation of haul roads
  • utility works (moving gas, water and electricity apparatus)

Construction of the railway line and tunnel through the Chilterns will begin when the preparation works are complete.

Closures and diversions for walkers, cyclists and horse riders around the construction works are below. Maps linked within 'Section Works' show alternative routes and likely length of closure.

All closures are taking place using powers outlined in the High Speed Rail (London – West Midlands) Act 2017. Reports and maps of the construction areas and the route itself can be found on the gov.uk website.
