I posted a rather long letter from them elsewhere (unformatted interestingly)

The nitty gritty for us I feel is the following extract:

The design of the tunnel, along with the construction method adopted by Tesco’s contractors, is currently under close scrutiny by a number of independent experts. They expect to complete their work towards the end of next week - we will keep you updated on progress. 

After completing their detailed tests, checks and analysis, they will submit a formal proposal to Network Rail, the Heath and Safety Executive (HSE) and Her Majesty’s Railway Inspectorate (HMRI).  It is the decision of these organisations that will determine the future of the tunnel. 

Whatever the recommendations turn out to be, you can be assured that safety comes first.  No trains will run through Gerrards Cross until we are convinced it is safe to do so. 

Chiltern Railways will be fully briefed on the analysis carried out, along with the conclusions reached and will have the chance to question and challenge all areas.
