HS2

Camden are organising some webchats to discuss HS2 on Tuesday 15 July 2014 and Thursday 17 July 2014. These erbchats are open to all Camden residents so do take the opportunity to have your voice heard.

The effects of HS2 may come much closer to us than you think.  A link between the HS2 station (Euston) and the HS1 station (St Pancras) was planned to run parallel to the London Overground line just north of Barker Drive.  For the moment it’s been shelved – but contrary to popular misconception – it’s not been cancelled.  That means that once teh project is underway it could be ‘unshelved’ at any time.

Maps showing the proposed HS2 are here – http://highspeedrail.dft.gov.uk/consultations/safeguarding/maps-and-plans/volume-1 and the map most relevant to us is Map 3 – HS1 link and Camden Town
