star this property answer text <p>(a) Yes. HS2 Ltd has identified that part of the Alexandra and Ainsworth Estate is built on piled foundations. As the planned tunnel is approximately 40m deep at this location, there is no risk of the piles intersecting the tunnel. The significant depth also means the ground movement and differential settlement at the surface is likely to be small. A Phase 1 green field ground movement assessment and a Phase 2 ground movement has been undertaken along the route. As these buildings are listed, there will also be a phase 3 assessment, which will take account of the unique features of the building and its foundations.</p><p> </p><p>HS2 Ltd has received no representations on these issues.</p><p> </p><p>(b) Yes, HS2 Ltd has identified that part of the Alexandra and Ainsworth estate is built on piled foundations. The building will be subject to a survey in accordance with Information Paper C3 which forms part of the High Speed Rail (London to West Midlands) Act 2017.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>(c) The ground movement at the building, using conservative volume loss assumptions, is between 1 and 7mm. In practice the experience of driving tunnels on Crossrail and HS1 in similar ground conditions demonstrates that the tunnels will be driven to a lower volume loss resulting in less movement. The tunnel boring machines specified for HS2 are high performance machines designed to minimise ground movement at source. This means there should be no need for the mitigations referred to.</p>

star this property answer text <p>344 buses have been retrofitted using funding from the 2015 Clean Bus Technology Fund (CBTF) and to date 1,677 have been retrofitted under the 2017-19 CBTF. There are approximately 35,000 buses in the English bus fleet, meaning around 5.8% of the total fleet has been retrofitted between 2015 and September 2019 through the CBTF. A further 2,793 buses are scheduled to be retrofitted from the most recent round of funding. Many buses are Euro VI or better and are already of a standard that does not require retrofitting in order to avoid Clean Air Zone charges.</p> more like this
