Knollys Road closure

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.

Residents can help to get problems on our local streets fixed quickly by reporting problems to the responsible agency. The agencies usually locate each incident on a map before actioning so try to get the most precise address possible, preferably with post code!.
