Update on HS2 November 2016:

This is an extract from the Government's consultation document.

Strelley - The route has moved east by approximately 15m at the southern portal of the tunnel under Strelley, and 10m east at Bulwell Wood Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). Beyond Strelley, the route is up to 3m higher over a long section of route, to improve clearances over watercourses and roads, reflecting lessons learned from the Phase One design, with higher embankments at Bulwell Wood SSSI and Nuthall, and a reduction in the depth of the cutting through Park Forest. The route follows the same corridor, although there would be some increase in impacts on the setting of the conservation area and local listed buildings, although the route under Strelley itself would continue to be in a cut and cover tunnel.
