The health, safety and wellbeing of our staff and the communities along the route remains our first priority.
Following UK Government advice to stop non-essential contact with other people, and avoid all unnecessary travel, we have taken the decision to postpone a number of face to face engagement events and meetings. We have made this decision to support the government aim to reduce the time spent in public places and the amount of contact between people due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
We are notifying local residents and have added information to the HS2 website and local community commonplace websites, as well as sending a notification to all those subscribed through our local websites.
We are looking at alternative ways of engaging and communicating with communities and local stakeholders over the coming weeks and months.
The HS2 Helpdesk remains operational all day, every day, and will be the public’s first point of contact should they need advice or information from HS2.
The HS2 Helpdesk can be contacted by:
• Telephone: 08081 434 434 (freephone)
• Minicom: 08081 456 472
The Helpdesk team will remain in regular contact with our community engagement managers across all areas of the route.
