Leigham Court Road roadworks update

Road works

Road works disupting traffic flows

Gas mains throughout much of south London are being replaced as they have reached the end of their life. As the mains are usually under the roads there is a great deal of traffic disruption.

Southern Gas has been working on replacing the gas mains along Leigham Court Road since July 2009. Work is due to be finished by 19th March but  problems elsewhere could delay the finish until  June 2010. To ensure there is progress on the Leigham Court Road works Lambeth Highways has asked Southern Gas to always have at least three people working on the mains replacement during the working day.

Southern Gas claim they do not have enough gas engineers  to cope with all the urgent gas leaks in south London and keep three people working on the Leigham Court Road mains replacement. Unfortunately there have been a large number of gas leaks over this winter and the gas engineers have to be diverted to work on the urgent repairs. For example there are several gas leaks and a mains water leak in  Coldharbour Lane  in Brixton where work is in hand for 6 weeks to repair these.

There are plans to close Knollys Road over the May 2010 bank holiday  – to fix the broken water mains near the Leigham Court Road end of  Knollys Rd.
