HS2 - Design of the Water Orton Viaducts

Published on Wednesday, 13th May 2020

Have your say on the design of the Water Orton Viaducts

We are developing a more detailed design for Phase One of the railway, following the appointment of our main works contractors. The design process helps us to plan and prepare for the construction of Britain’s new high speed railway.

A key aspect of this process is making the community aware of our work and seeking their views on certain structures or parts of the railway known as ‘Key Design Elements’. This includes the Water Orton Viaducts. As the three Water Orton Viaducts are significant structures that span the area and cross other major transport links so we want them to respect their surroundings and the local area as much as possible.

You can view the plans on our information booklet, before completing our quick online survey. The survey closes at 11pm on Tuesday 26 May.
