HS2 Construction: Closures and Diversions

Temporary rights of way route closures and diversions will commence in January 2018 and last for at least 7 to 8 years. Initially these will include preparation works such as environmental mitigation, archaeology, installation of haul roads and utility works (moving gas, water and electricity apparatus). Thereafter construction of the actual railway line and tunnel through the Chilterns will take place. This area of the website details the closures and, where possible, route diversions for walkers, cyclists and horse riders around the construction works. A map will be included to illustrate the alternative route and likely length of closure. All closures are taking place using powers outlined in the High Speed Rail (London – West Midlands) Act 2017. Maps of the construction areas and the route itself can be found here:
