Question

Further to Question No: 2017/2482, in relation to the various reports on the proposed development at 100 Avenue Road, can I draw your attention to the requirements of condition 31 and the interaction with HS2, The main point being that HS2 is an 'adjacent' structure, which Essential Living's own engineers say has a "Potential for damage to the new building from future HS2 tunnel construction" and that "The impact of HS2 should be reviewed as part of the design process". Has this been done by TfL, as it would be wrong for the 100 Avenue Road building to be demolished and then for a reason later to arise to not proceed because of a conflict with HS2.

As set out in my answer to MQ2017/2482, London Underground (LU) is confident that the proposed development does not have a detrimental effect on its assets or operations, however this will be monitored by LU works inspectors throughout construction.

While any concerns about the demolition in relation to HS2 should be directed to the Department for Transport, I know that LU would be happy to meet with you to talk through your concerns. Further reassurance for local residents, I hope, could be sought direct from the London Borough of Camden.
