In conjunction with Amersham Action Group, the Town Council arranged a public meeting in Old Amersham on 11 February where HS2 and their contractors presented their plans to nearly 200 residents for junction improvements at Whielden Lane/A404, where the Chiltern tunnel vent shaft will be built, as well as plans for the future public engagement on the vent shaft head house design. More information is available on the HS2 website, but you can click here to view the slide presentations from that meeting.

Further consultation will be held later in the year, with a public exhibition on the vent shaft head house design, so please keep an eye on the Town Council website and local notice boards for further information, or check out the HS2 Amersham Action Group website at http://www.hs2amersham.org.uk/
