HS2 Works: Utility drainage surveys on Rupert Road, Denmark Road and residential compounds
We recently wrote to you regarding drainage surveys in your local area. We would like to inform you that we will be carrying out further surveys on Rupert Road, Denmark Road and in the grounds of Walbrook Court and Winterleys residential properties. These surveys will help us to understand the condition of the drainage system in the area and how best to protect it during construction of the railway. We will investigate the condition of the sewer system using a camera and may need to flush the system if any blockages are found. Your utility services will not be affected during these works.
If you have a question about HS2 or our works, please contact our HS2 Helpdesk team on 08081 434 434 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

South Kilburn resident Pete Firmin adds November 2nd 2021:
And so it continues - leaflet (photo below) arrives today. "Update meeting for residents near our Canterbury Works site". Okay, that's South Kilburn. But then at the online meeting we will "find out more about SCSJV's current and upcoming works at the Atlas Road site". I've no idea what SCSJV stands for, but I do know that Atlas Road is at Old Oak Common, nowhere near the Canterbury Works site. Confusing is an understatement.
EDITOR'S COMMENT: With such terrific in-depth geographical expertise at HS2 Ltd the line may well end up in Ipswich.
