ON TRACK: Chalfonts & Gerrards Cross residents invited to discuss ongoing impact of HS2

 Published on: 22nd January 2023   |   By: Bryn Holmes   |   Category: Uncategorized

A presentation event on the ongoing HS2 railway and its impact on The Chalfonts and Gerrards Cross took place today.

The online event organised by the Chiltern Society took place on January 21 from 10.30am to 12pm.

Residents were invited to ask questions and discuss how construction has had an impact on the area.

The construction of the high-speed rail network has seen major changes to the local landscape, with tunnelling works going past the ventilation shaft in Chalfont St Peter in September. The boring machines are now well on their way to Chalfont St Giles.

Mark Thurston, CEO of HS2, said: “2022 has been a year of immense progress and I’d like to thank everyone involved.

“Right now, HS2 is delivering jobs for almost 30,000 people, with tens of thousands more supported throughout our wider supply chain.

“More than 2,800 companies have contracts with HS2, ensuring the project is helping grow the UK economy long before a single train starts running.”
