Since July 2017 HS2 Ltd has been working with the main works civils contractors SCS JV (Skanska Construction UK Ltd, Costain Ltd, STRABAG AG), to develop scheme designs and the construction programme for the line of route works that includes the tunnels adjacent to Alexandra Road Park on Langtry Walk. The shaft that was originally proposed at Alexandra Place is not part of the current scheme.
From July 2018 SCS and HS2 Ltd will be engaging with the local communities with an increasing level of information as the designs matures. Scheme Design will continue through 2018, with a view to commencing construction works in 2019 and tunnel construction in 2020.
Enabling works will continue in the area and HS2 Ltd will continue to engage with the communities local on these works.
