New Map Suggests Areas Affected By HS-2 Noise

CPRE Map HS-2

Published by the Mix96 News Team at 10:50am 9th May 2014.

A new website has been put together by the Campaign to Protect Rural England, which sets out in map form the noise and visual impacts from HS2.

The maps shows the detail of the earthworks, landscaping, planting and ponds proposed along HS2.

The background shows the lie of the land; hills, water features and woodland together with National Character Areas of the landscape.

The maps have been created which also show residents the extent of the noise reduction and prevention measures being taken including cuttings, embankments and earth mounds (bunds).

Residents can also see the proposed level of tree planting and buffer zones to existing woodland.

Hedgerows are also shown designed to compensate for hedgerows which have been removed or fragmented or improve "connectivity" between nature habitats.

Consideration of Phase 1 of HS2 now enters into a period of Parliamentary scrutiny.
