Response to 12 design refinements following a consultation on HS2 Phase One between London and the West Midlands

Document

Detail

This document forms part of the final outcome of the HS2 design refinement consultation, which ran from 16 May to 11 July 2013.

On 24 October 2013 we published a response about the decision to tunnel the HS2 Phase One route at Northolt and Bromford and the decision to re-issue safeguarding directions for the Phase One route to reflect these additional tunnels. The documentation and decisions were issued at this time in order to provide certainty to property owners in these areas as soon as practicable.

We have now published this decision document relating to the remaining 12 refinements on the HS2 Phase One route.
