Hillingdon Against HS2 is working to save our local communities from the devastation and disruption the High Speed Rail 2 project would create. The government wants to use at least £33 billion of your money to build a new high speed rail line from London Euston non-stop to Birmingham and beyond.
There is still lots to be done to overturn the HS2 proposals and we still need your help.
There is a never-ending source of stories on HS2 in the media on our facebook page, please join in to keep up to date.

The biggest infrastructure project in the UK, and the most expensive railway in the world, HS2 will hurtle through parts of Ruislip, Ickenham and Harefield at speeds of up to 300kph, causing residents loss of properties, businesses and leisure facilities. A link to Heathrow in phase 2 of the HS2 project may wreak further chaos and devastation on our borough, particularly South of the A40. It could mean up to 10 years of construction work, and local residents will be effectively living in a huge building site during this time.
HS2 will cost each constituency £51 million, each household in the nation £1,000 and benefit very few travellers. We believe at best 0.5%.
