Royal Circus SE27 is due to be resurfaced on Thursday & Friday this week. And next week York Hill by Cambrian Close SE27 0BS is due to be closed for about 5 days from Monday 13thAugust for more water works .
Look out for road diversion signs and 315 bus diversions. When the roads are closed the 315 bus will be diverted up Knights Hill along Crown Lane and down Leigham Court Road.
Stop press: Royal Circus works now postponed for several weeks.
Preparing for the roadworks
Road resurfacing works are due to start at 10pm on Sunday night 11th January in West Norwood. The works are due to take place over 3 nights (10pm to 6am) to resurface the parts of Norwood Road and Knights Hill closest to Robson Road SE27. Disruptions are being limited by working at night – between 10pm and 6am .
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.
