HS2 Update: Amersham Ventilation Shaft: ‘You Said, We Did’ online Webinars

Monday, July 12th, 2021
Filed under: HS2, News Item

We have received a notification from HS2 regarding the Amersham headhouse design, which will be shown during three online public ‘webinars’, details of which are included below. A link with this information can also be found here .

We would like to invite you to our ‘You Said, We Did’ online events and virtual exhibition to share the final designs for the Amersham Ventilation Shaft and Headhouse and the design for the surrounding landscape. These online ‘webinars’ have been set up to give the local community the opportunity to hear from the team designing and building the railway in your area.


In September 2020, we held a public engagement event and you gave us feedback on four topics about our design and construction. We asked you to rank our objectives in order of priority and provide comments. Your comments and how we have taken on board feedback from the community regarding Landscape, Ecology, Design of the headhouse and Construction will be the focus of the virtual exhibition and online events.

Due to Covid-19 we have postponed all public face-to-face engagement events and meetings, but we will continue to find new ways to involve the community.

We are holding a series of three online ‘You Said, We Did’ events to show you the final design for the Amersham Ventilation Shaft. These online ‘webinars’ have been set up to give the local community the opportunity to hear from the team designing and building the railway in your area.

Sign up to our online events to find out more

During the sessions we will:

  • Show you feedback that we received during design development, which has influenced our approach
  • Explore the final designs we are seeking consent on from the local authority
  • Provide information on the construction timeline

Our team of experts will also be available to answer any questions you may have during the event.

This event is being held on three dates, please select which date to you would like to attend when registering:
