HS2 Gets A Tweak Around Brackley

Author: James Rudd Published: 10th September 2010 18:16

HS changes

A supplementary report has been produced on the High Speed Rail Route Two (HS2) route through South Northants and particularly around Brackley.

The new route claims less intrusion and would move the route eastwards (towards Towcster) away from Mixbury and pass into a deep cutting north of Turweston.

The document claims that noise and visual effects would be reduced for Mixbury, Turweston, Backley and Greatworth.

The original route earlier this year came in for a great deal of flak, and the concern continues. There are fears that South Northants may have little choice if Buckinghamshire and Warwickshire agree on a route north and south of the county.

The route with the changes is the Government's preferred route three, there are however as many as 8 other options including some around Towcester.

There is a campaign group who will be walking parts of the route, SNAG HS2 see their website
