Following a question raised by the Parish Council Chair, Stuart Rolt, confirmation has been received from Chris James, Senior Engagement Manager for HS2, that there are indeed plans in place for a sound barrier on the north side of the Lower Thorpe viaduct, although the final design has not been settled. A further update will be provided to the Parish Council once the exact nature and detail of the barrier is known.
