HS2 recently announced plans for a maintenance depot opposite Arla and next to the M1.
This will clearly need connectivity to the HS2 tracks and is likely to cause further disruption to local rail services while these connections are made and realignment takes place. There are currently no estimates as to the severity or period of disruption anticipated.
The depot will be operational 24 hours a day.
A consultation on the proposed depot is currently open and runs until 12 October 2017 – raise your objections and concerns now!
