HS2 leaflets mistakenly sent to Aberdeen

Work on HS2 has been delayed after hundreds of leaflets meant for Bucks end up in Aberdeen. 

Project bosses have apologised after pamphlets detailing the work in our county were sent 500 miles away to Ferryhill by mistake. 

People reportedly phoned the HS2 helpline very confused and inquired about the work. 

An HS2 spokesperson has told Mix96:

“Due to an administrative error, some residents in Ferryhill, Aberdeen wrongly received information about HS2. 

"This unfortunate technical error happened when generating postcodes for the distribution of these notifications. 

"We are reviewing the processes around this system to ensure this doesn’t happen again and we apologise for any confusion and inconvenience caused”.

The leaflets were meant for villagers in Calvert warning them about noise from machinery that will be used for an archeological dig near the area.
