What we are doing

From 6 December 2021 to 28 May 2022, we will be carrying out utility works near West Ruislip train station, in the area shown on the map overleaf. These works are to prepare for the start of tunnelling in 2022.

During the second phase, we will be carrying out the main utility works which includes excavation, installation and reinstatement of the gas mains and installation of water valves. Estimated dates 10 January to 30 April 2022.

In the final phase we will be reinstate the central reservation and pedestrian crossing. Estimated dates 2 to 28 May 2022.

How the surveys might affect you

In order to carry out these utility work safely:

  • a footpath diversion will be in place including a temporary pedestrian crossing located either side of the work area
  • the cycle path will be closed for the duration of these works
  • the West Ruislip bus Stop S and Stop M will be suspended and temporarily in a safe location.

Your utility services will not be affected.
