New tunnel plan for HS2
New plans for a 9 kilometer tunnel under Ealing and Northolt, as part of the High Speed Two line, have been unveiled.
Officials say the new plan would be 15 months quicker to build and minimise disruption to residents and traffic in north west London.
HS2 bosses had originally planned to run the line overground between Old Oak Common and Northolt - but now say it would be quicker to tunnel it.
It's a major concession to residents in the area - who should see much less disruption as a result of the work.
