We understand this is being funded solely by West Northants Unitary Authority. While most of the route is in Northamptonshire, we in this corner of Oxfordshire benefit enormously from it. Banbury also benefits. The people of West Northamptonshire are able to use public

Notice from EKFB on behalf of HS2 This is  an update on some construction and road closure activity taking place soon. We will soon be installing the temporary bridge in Chipping Warden. It should be quite impressive to see, as it involves a large crane with careful manoeuvring, but it will involve some weekend road closures.

Update on HS2 Precast tunnel segment deliveries

Good news regarding the Sunday morning precast deliveries. Message from EKFB on behalf of HS2 After a period of testing and modifications, we have adapted the way we load and transport the largest precast segments. This method reduces the width of the load, which will mean no additional traffic management will be required. With immediate effect, we will no longer routinely be delivering the precast segments using the Sunday morning lane closures. The widest segments will now arrive mid-week, as part of the regular precast delivery schedule to Chipping Warden Compound. Please note that there are some segments which, due to particular design features, may still require occasional use of a road closure. So this option may need to be
