Hillingdon Traffic Study to reduce HGV movement caused by HS2

Summary report and additional resources for Hillingdon Traffic Study completed in May 2016.



The study has concluded that by implementing a number of measures it is feasible that two-way peak HGV movements can be reduced to 550 per day. These measures are dependent upon results from ground investigations, ecological surveys and agreements being reached between High Speed Two (HS2) Ltd and Hillingdon Council.

HS2 Ltd provided assurances to Transport for London and Hillingdon Council to engage actively with them in a study to reduce Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV) movements. This is set to a maximum of 550 two-way movements per day at Swakeleys roundabout and to significantly reduce the area of sustainable placement in Hillingdon.
