Norwood Road southbound, from Tulse Hill station to Elmcourt Road, will be closed from the evening of Monday 12th June till 30th July . This closure is for Thames Water to complete its work to reline the water mains for our local area.
Southbound traffic from Brixton & Herne Hill will enter West Norwood via Lancaster Avenue. Southbound buses from Herne Hill ( 196, 322, 468, 690 & N68 ) will diverted along Croxted Road to Thurlow Park Road to turn into Lancaster Avenue. Buses from Brixton ( 2, 432, X68 & N2) will divert along Rosendale Road to Thurlow Park Road before turning into Lancaster Avenue . These bus diversions are expected to add 15 minutes to the journey time. A decision is yet to be made on whether the 68 bus should divert via Rosendale Road or end its route at Tulse Hill station.

Thames Water is spending around £5m relining the Leigham Vale water main and surrounding works. As the mains are underneath our roads the roads have to be closed to traffic to access the pipes. Leigham Vale remains closed to through traffic till the end of July 2017.
The section of road from the Leigham Vale – Knollys Road roundabout to Leigham Court Road is now one way and closed to eastbound traffic for the next 4- 6 weeks. So all our east – west streets off Leigham Court Road are likely to have increased traffic , particularly Rosedene Avenue / Mt Nod Road and Canterbury Grove.

Knights Hill Thursday evening
Knights Hill was closed to traffic on Thursday 16th April to allow Thames Water to repair a burst water main at the junction with Wolfington Road. Northbound traffic, including buses , is being diverted via Crown Lane, Leigham Court Road, Streatham Hill, Christchurch Road, Hardel Rise, Norwood Road and Ernest Avenue. Works are expected to take about 5 days. For more details on the road closure please email: XCEDtmcord@lambeth.gov.uk or phone 07940 578 863.

There are frequent complaints about the poor state of Ernest Avenue – in front of Norwood bus garage . So its great news that work is starting on rebuilding the surface of this road on Monday 29th July.
To enable the surface to be properly rebuilt Ernest Avenue will be closed from 29th July and the St Lukes church gyratory extended with traffic diverted one way down Rothschild Street. The engineers expect the works to take 3 months. Arrangements have been made for businesses and residents needing access to Ernest Avenue whilst it is closed to traffic. The bus stop at the side of the bus garage for buses going south up Knights Hill will be temporarily moved to Rothschild Street at the back of the bus garage. Buses going north will temporarily no longer stop outside the bus garage but pick up at St.Julian’s Farm Road bus stop (except for the 68 which picks up at West Norwood rail station).
Councillors Jane Pickard and Jackie Meldrum spoke with businesses on the diversion route last week and saw the marked up temporary bus stop and bus stands on Rothschild Street.
If you want to discuss access arrangements please email Ian Neville, the project engineer in charge of these works at firstname.lastname@example.org
