Details

These documents have been published as part of the HS2 Phase One environmental statement for the route between London and the West Midlands. The environmental statement was produced to accompany the HS2 Phase One hybrid Bill.

This appendix:

  • lists potential receptors at risk from electromagnetic fields, electromagnetic interference and induced voltages for each community forum area (CFA)
  • explains the risks and mitigation associated with electromagnetic field emissions that could be produced by the traction power supply of Phase One of HS2
  • contains the results of an initial assessment of the magnetic field levels and induced voltages associated with Phase One of HS2
  • specifies how Network Rail manages the risks associated with electromagnetic emissions

Some of the information in these reports is specific to individual community forum areas (CFAs). A map showing each CFA is available as part of the Non-technical summary.

  1. Removal of 'Network Rail company standard NR/L2/RSE/30041' report - The Network Rail Standard NR/L2/RSE/RSE/30041 has been removed as it is not directly applicable to HS2. This standard has been produced by Network Rail to manage the risk of asset failure on Network Rail controlled infrastructure associated with known uncontrolled electromagnetic phenomena. HS2 Ltd will, prior to putting the system in to operation, produce a similar document to discharge its legal obligations under the EMC Regulations (2006).
