Date of post: 12 October 2021: Notification of ground investigation work in Marston near Stone.  As part of the continuing activity ahead of the construction of the railway, HS2 are  letting you know about some planned works that we will be carrying out in your area.

Working on behalf of HS2 Ltd, National Grid is legally required to move a number of overhead electricity lines, pylons and gas pipelines along the HS2 route to allow for the build and operation of the new railway.

The new HS2 railway will pass above an existing gas pipeline in Marston. We’ll divert the pipeline around 2023 so it can continue to operate safely and reliably.

To inform the design for the diversion, our contractor, Fastflow, will undertake ground investigation surveys in Marston around mid-October. A team of up to 15 people, with around eight vehicles and equipment including an excavator, mobile water tank and welfare units, will carry out the work.

Visit your local community webpages to find information about HS2 works and developments in your area.

Date of post: 28 September 2021: Notice of ground investigation surveys off Tolldish Lane, Great Haywood.  As part of the continuing activity ahead of the construction of the railway, HS2 are letting you know about some planned works that will be carried out in your area.

In early 2023, we will be starting work to move an existing gas pipeline on land either side of Tolldish Lane, Great Haywood.

Before we move the pipeline, we need to carry out some surveys off Tolldish lane, to understand more about the land we will be working in. The work will involve drilling boreholes and digging small pits so we can take samples of the ground to analyse. We will be carrying out the surveys from 11 October 2021.
