HS2 Across the Chilterns – 8th Update (Online Presentation & Discussion)

13 July at 10:30 am until 12:00 pm

HS2 Watch

We are pleased to invite you to the 8th in a series of updates, showing the impact as construction of the HS2 high speed railway line continues across the Chilterns.

Construction will soon be completed along certain sections of the route across the Colne Valley Regional Park and the Chilterns.  The Colne Valley Viaduct will be finished later this year as will the Chiltern Tunnel. The five tunnel shafts will all be complete early in 2025.

Beyond the north tunnel portal near Great Missenden, construction is nowhere near complete with much more disruption to come.  Construction of the Wendover Dean and Small Dean viaducts is now well underway.  Construction of the Wendover ‘green’ tunnel has been delayed for various reasons but is also now underway.

Using a mixture of maps, pictures, visualisations and, most importantly aerial photographs. The update will show the impact at a number of locations across the Colne Valley Regional Park as well as the Chilterns.

The talk will last for about 60 minutes with plenty of time for questions and discussion.

Keith Hoffmeister has been photographing the route ever since the plans were first revealed in 2010.  He covered the whole route from Euston to Birmingham and published a DVD in 2012 as part of the stop HS2 campaign.  He was also instrumental in establishing the HS2 Photo Diary which appears on our website.
