HS2 Old Oak Site Update

Conveyor system colour

During the spring HS2 contractors, SCSJV and BBVS will build a conveyor system between HS2sites in Old Oak and Park Royal to allow for the movement of excavated material between sites. The conveyor system will be light grey in colour which will blend into the surroundings. For further information about the colour, you can read the notice here.

Concrete pour at Old Oak Common station site

Earlier this year, HS2 notified the community of their programme of piling and diaphragm wall activity taking place at the Old Oak Common Station site. You can view that notification here

As part of these works, HS2 agreed extended working hours to allow time for the safe completion of large concrete pours for the ground strengthening activity, and HS2 only work these hours where required, not every day.

HS2 will be completing the first large concrete pour on the site on Wednesday 7 April 2021. They will aim to complete the pour as quickly as possible, however, this may continue into the extended hours up until 10pm. HS2 will have more large concrete pours over the coming months.
