HS2 Ltd does not have information as to the specific number of properties that may be affected by ground settlement as a result of construction activity. Buildings which are identified as having the potential for being at risk of settlement, will be subject to an assessment to establish the extent of the risk; and to identify any monitoring measures or protective measures that need to be put in place. Any building identified as high risk through the assessment will trigger mitigation either in the tunneling or to the building itself.
