"Residents affected by the High Speed Rail Link (HS2) through parts of Ealing should be compensated according to a new alliance.
"Ealing Council has joined forces with Camden and Hillingdon to call on the government to grant 'A fair deal for London' on HS2 compensation.
"... Amanda Souter, chair of Wells House Road Residents’ Association in Old Oak Common said:
"We are facing the prospect of living with constant construction for 24 hours, seven days a week for up to a decade. At some points we will be completely cut off from vital amenities such as shops, transport, doctors and churches and children will have journeys of an hour or more to get to local schools only minutes away. However HS2 ltd. has failed to recognise our community’s unique circumstances in offering any form of compensation."
