Use park walks be­fore rail line work be­gins

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

The HS2 se­lect com­mit­tee vis­ited Colne Val­ley last month on a tour of ar­eas af­fected by the line, but the visit was com­bined with a trip to Hilling­don, and peo­ple living in Den­ham felt the PEO­PLE are be­ing en­cour­aged to use a park on the HS2 rail route.

Parts of Colne Val­ley Park, in Den­ham, will be af­fected by the high speed rail line’s con­struc­tion and the park is en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple to take ad­van­tage be­fore it is too late.

A park state­ment said; “HS2 will dis­sect the Colne Val­ley Re­gional Park with a 3.4km viaduct, 12 con­struc­tion com­pounds, two worker ac­com­mo­da­tion sites, two tun­nel por­tals and five elec­tric­ity sta­tions.”

It adds, three of the park’s cir­cu­lar walks will be af­fected as well as ac­cess.

The walks af­fected are those around Old Shire Lane, Chal­font Park and Grand Union.
