Aylesbury’s MP, Rob Butler, has slammed HS2 Ltd over their ‘behaviour’ after Buckinghamshire Council rejected the proposed agreements on traffic management for construction.

The proposed Scheduled 17 plan to approve lorry route applications has been refused, due to a lack of relevant information provided by HS2 Ltd.

Additionally, Buckinghamshire Council initially had concerns about the impact of increased large construction vehicle (HGVs) movements on the A413/A355 corridor from north of Wendover to the M40 and Beaconsfield.

The news has been welcomed by Mr Butler, who became the town’s MP in the 2019 General Election.

He said: “I wholeheartedly support Buckinghamshire Council in their decision to withhold consent for the s17 applications affecting the A413 from Wendover to Aylesbury.

“Meetings my team and I have had with the council have consistently raised concerns about residents and businesses facing significant congestion and delays as a result of HS2’s lorries.

“Yet the company failed time and again to provide the council with the information needed to show how it would minimise the impact for local people.

“It is simply not good enough and the council was right to refuse the applications.

“HS2 Ltd really does need to stop this behaviour.

“The CEO, Mark Thurston, has told me personally that he wants to be a good neighbour.

“He needs to tell his staff the same thing.

“They must stop finding excuses, tell us all what we need to know and make absolutely sure that the contractors cause minimal disturbance to local people during the construction of this unwanted and ludicrously expensive railway.”
