Thames Water update
Following our previous survey work in the area, we have now finalised our plans to divert the Ruislip Branch Trunk sewer. The diversion is needed to make way for the new HS2 line.
From the end of this year, we will begin work to tunnel underground between the Ickenham Green allotments and the golf course.

This means that we will need to take over several plots in the allotment area. We are in contact with the affected tenants and the landowner, the London Borough of Hillingdon.
Our work will be carried out underground and there will be no disruption above ground to neighbouring residents outside the working areas. Footpaths in the area may need to be closed, but diversions will be put in place. We will write to you to notify you of any closures in advance.

We are working to minimise the temporary land take required for these works and we will provide further details on the working areas in future notifications.
We will be in touch again to inform you of online engagement events and to provide regular updates on the works including the start date.
