HS2

HS2 passes to the southwest of Westwood Heath - Click here for an interactive map of the route 

Inevitably there will be disruption during construction and it is unclear how construction traffic will access the site.  There will also be an HS2 overbridge built over the A46, likely to overlap with the construction of the first phase of the A46 link road, which will reduce the A46 by one lane in each direction.

There is a web page for HS2 local information (for Warwickshire).

This video is based on aerial photography from 2013 with the HS2 route overlaid in CGI.

Coming from the north, the landmarks recognisable are: Burton Green (6:29), Kenilworth Road (7:23) and the A46 (7:30)

The following aerial pictures of the HS2 works near Westwood Heath were taken in July 2020 and show the construction of the "haul road" through Crackley Wood.  The protest camp is still in place and visible as a collection of tents.
