HS2 - Please re-route to avoid Gloucester Avenue Homes. London NW1

The HS2 High Speed train, was given the go ahead in 2012. The train enters a proposed tunnel very close to buildings on Gloucester Avenue, London, NW1, and is within metres of existing railway lines. 

The proposal is for a new tunnel to be dug directly underneath the residential buildings along Gloucester Avenue. 

The residents and neighbours living on Gloucester Avenue would like to persuade the Engineers and Designers of HS2, to bore the tunnel under the existing railway tracks, thereby avoiding disruption and uncertainty for the residents. In our view, this wil not make a material difference to HS2, but will definitely alleviate much of the concern surrounding the construction of the tunnel and the route of the train. 

Please support our petition. 


Bob Latif - Gloucester Avenue Resident

Current arguments for the scheme are based on an extremely amateur and paper thin projections. Having spent my career plotting growth for companies it is fairly simple to see the case for is guess work and crossed fingers. The ultimate objective is one we all subscribe to but I am 90% certain this will not deliver and be an embarrassing error and growth would be far more likely if invested in the digital economy. I could go on..
