More than 1,000 jobs will be lost and wildlife destroyed
would be fitted to the viaduct.
Despite the sound walls, the daytime noise levels from the railway in parts of Long Eaton, Toton and Stapleford may exceed the threshold set in the noise insulation regulations, according to the report.
Around 4,000 car parking spaces would be needed and be built to the east and west of the Toton station.
The report also says there would be a significant impact on traffic in the area. It says that construction of the railway around Long Eaton would lead to increased congestion on the M1, A52, A453, A6005, B5010 and B6002, as well as other local roads.
There would also be an increase in air pollution from the congestion caused, as well as the heavy construction machinery operating.
The report says: “Construction activity could also affect local air quality through the additional traffic generated on local roads as a result of construction vehicles and through changes to traffic patterns arising from temporary road diversions and realignments.”
How the new highspeed trains will look
THE report has found that more than 1,000 jobs would be lost or displaced, and 91% of the wildlife on Toton Sidings site would be destroyed by the construction of the high-speed line.A stretch of the A52, near Toton Lane, would need to be moved 25 metres south, with roadworks taking two years, according to the report. The scale of the construction could also adversely affect the health and wellbeing of residents in the area and an extension of Nottingham’s tram network to the station would be factored in.“Vehicular access (to the Toton Station) would be provided from the A52 Brian Clough Way and allowance for a corridor for a future extension of the Nottingham Express Transit tramline on the east side of the station.”The building work around Long Eaton, Stapleford and Toton would last eight years, from 2025 to 2033, and the Long Eaton viaduct would be even larger than previously planned – 19 metres rather than 17.Four metre tall sound barriers The marker balloon indicates the proposed height of the top of HS2 noise barrier.
