2 E19: SUSTAINABLE PLACEMENT OF SURPLUS EXCAVATED MATERIAL 1. Introduction 1.1. High Speed Two (HS2) is the Government s proposal for a new, high speed north-south railway. The proposal is being taken forward in two phases: Phase One will connect London with Birmingham and the West Midlands and Phase Two will extend the route to Manchester, Leeds and beyond HS2 Ltd is the non-departmental public body responsible for developing and promoting these proposals. The company works to a Development Agreement made with the Secretary of State for Transport In November 2013, HS2 Ltd deposited a hybrid Bill 1 with Parliament to seek powers for the construction and operation of Phase One of HS2 (sometimes referred to as the Proposed Scheme ). The Bill is the culmination of nearly six years of work, including an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), the results of which were reported in an Environmental Statement (ES) submitted alongside the Bill. The Secretary of State has also published draft Environmental Minimum Requirements (EMRs), which set out the environmental and sustainability commitments that will be observed in the construction of the Proposed Scheme The Bill is being promoted through Parliament by the Secretary of State for Transport (the Promoter ). The Secretary of State will also appoint a body responsible for delivering the Proposed Scheme under the powers granted by the Bill This body is known as the 'nominated undertaker'. There may well be more than one nominated undertaker for example, HS2 Ltd could become the nominated undertaker for the main railway works, while Network Rail could become the nominated undertaker for works to an existing station such as Euston. But whoever they are, all nominated undertakers will be bound by the obligations contained in the Bill and the policies established in the EMRs These information papers have been produced to explain the commitments made in the Bill and the EMRs and how they will be applied to the design and construction of the Proposed Scheme. They also provide information about the Proposed Scheme itself, the powers contained in the Bill and how particular decisions about the project have been reached. 2. Sustainable placement 2.1. This Information Paper outlines the approach to sustainable placement of excavated material within Phase One of the HS2 project. Sustainable placement is the on-site placement for disposal of surplus excavated material to avoid causing environmental 1 The High Speed Rail (London West Midlands) Bill, hereafter the Bill. 2

3 effects 2 that would otherwise be associated with the off-site disposal of that material. On-site in this context means within the land required for the purposes of the Proposed Scheme and off-site means external land (or landfill site) which is not specifically required for the purposes of the Proposed Scheme The construction of HS2 Phase One will generate a significant amount of excavated material (approximately 128 million tonnes) from the construction of tunnels and cuttings. HS2 Ltd has taken an integrated design approach 3 to, as far as reasonably practicable, use this excavated material elsewhere within the design of the scheme. For example, where material is required to form embankments and landscaping on various parts of the route. Please see the Information Paper E3: Excavated Material and Waste Management for further information Excavated material becomes surplus if its irrecoverable physical, chemical or biochemical quality prevents it from being used in the Proposed Scheme, if there is more material than required for the construction of the Proposed Scheme or the requirement for a type of material is too far away from the excavation point to make its use practicable, due to cost or environmental implications. In principle, surplus material is that material which we have no use for or which is unsuitable for use within the Proposed Scheme Sustainable placement of surplus excavated material is recognised as a disposal activity and will be appropriately permitted by the Environment Agency and in line with the requirements of the EU Landfill Directive (1999/31/EC). Sustainable placement will only be used to dispose of inert surplus excavated material. HS2 Ltd considers disposal, including on-site disposal, to be the option of last resort The likely environmental effects of sustainable placement have been described and assessed in the relevant chapters of the ES. Compliance with the Code of Construction Practice will mitigate any environmental impacts that may arise during construction Where sustainable placement is necessary existing topsoil will be stripped and stored prior to placement of the excavated materials. Excavated material will be incorporated into the existing landform as far as possible. Upon completion, stripped and stored topsoil will be returned, hedgerows will be replanted on their existing alignments and the land restored as ecological planting or returned to agriculture. 3. Sustainable placement sites 3.1. Local sites for sustainable placement have been selected based on their location and suitability for the disposal of surplus excavated material, for example to avoid source protection zone (SPZ) one, designated to protect potable water supplies. Where SPZ 2 Primarily transportation effects and the associated environmental effects of noise, air quality and climate change. 3 An integrated design approach is one which takes into account all relevant design impacts and aspirations. 3

4 one is unavoidable, placement would be subject to an appropriate risk assessment identifying no adverse impact on: the groundwater abstractors ability to supply potable water; or the quality of the wider aquifer in accordance with the objectives of the Water Framework Directive The assessment will define acceptance criteria to which the excavated material will be compared prior to placement; this will ensure that there is no impact Three sites have been selected for sustainable placement. However one of these, Calvert within CFA13, has been selected to provide certainty of disposal of surplus excavated material from the bored tunnels in the London Metropolitan area. This material will be moved off site by rail as the location at which it arises and the volumes that will be generated will make road transportation impracticable. It will therefore be most efficient to take this material to a rail connected disposal site. The continuous (i.e. 24 hour, 7 day per week) bored tunnelling activity in the London Metropolitan area means that it is important to be certain that a disposal site can accept the quantity of surplus excavated material as quickly as it is produced The sustainable placement areas within the Proposed Scheme are described in Table 1.1, as well as the Community Forum Area (CFA) reports and maps in which they appear in Volume 2 of the ES The use of these sustainable placement areas will reduce the amount of inert surplus excavated material that needs to be disposed off-site to landfill by approximately 6,850,000 tonnes (approximately 850,000 lorry movements). This represents 5% of the total excavated material from the project.

Further detail on each sustainable placement site is provided below. 4

5 Harvil Road 3.7. Sustainable placement is required in the Harvil Road area to dispose of surplus excavated material from the Brackenbury and Copthall cuttings Three areas have been identified for the sustainable placement of surplus excavated material in CFA6, in the Harvil Road area. One is located to the north of New Year's Green Lane (approximately 1.1km long and up to 600m wide) and two are located on the land between Breakspear Road South and Harvil Road to the south of the Proposed Scheme (the larger of which will be approximately 660m long and up to 470m wide and the smaller of which will approximately be 330m long and up to 250m wide). The latter areas are separated by the existing high-pressure gas main that splits this section of land. Material will be placed to a height of approximately 3m Upon completion, the reinstated land will be landscaped and used for habitat-rich grassland and woodland planting A fourth area, which will be approximately 850m long, up to 315m wide and up to 3m high, will be located to the north of the Proposed Scheme, south-east of South Harefield in CFA On completion, hedgerows will be replanted on their existing alignments and the land returned to agriculture Sustainable placement in this area will avoid approximately 360,000 road lorry movements in the Harvil Road area. South Heath A sustainable placement area will be used to permanently dispose of surplus excavated material from the adjacent South Heath cutting and from cuttings in the Central Chilterns area (CFA9). The area will be approximately 1.3km long, up to 450m wide, and up to 5m in height. It will be located on four fields immediately to the east of the Proposed Scheme, between Hunt's Green Farm, King's Lane and the South Heath cutting/route The sustainable placement area will form an extension to the landscape mitigation earthwork and will achieve an equivalent height of up to 5m but with gentler slope profiles. Following reinstatement to agricultural use, the visual and landscape impact will be negligible notwithstanding its position within the AONB Sustainable placement in this area will avoid approximately 240,000 road lorry movements in the Central Chilterns area. Calvert The sustainable placement area in Calvert will be used for the disposal of surplus excavated material from the bored tunnels in the London Metropolitan area. The area will be up to 800m long, up to 600m wide and up to 5m in height, and will be located to the east of the Proposed Scheme, north of Calvert. 5

6 3.17. On completion, hedgerows will be reinstated on their former position, modified land drainage will be provided and the land returned to agriculture Sustainable placement in this area will avoid approximately 250,000 road lorry movements. 4.
