Wallington Summer traffic disruption

men at work 2The Junction Improvement Scheme at Woodcote Road/Woodcote Green/Sandy Lane site has been scheduled to take place during the school summer break to minimise disruption. Some works to the junctions have already been completed, but the major works of installing a bespoke domed mini-roundabout is due to start on site on 24th July 2014. Although unlikely to cause as many problems as it would during term time, residents can still expect delays and diversions whilst the works are ongoing and are advised to find alternative routes where possible.

The works are expected to take eight weeks and so will run into the beginning of September.

At the same time we have learned that an urgent gas main replacement is required in Boundary Road from the roundabout at Stanley Park Road to Grosvenor Avenue. Again these works have been negotiated to take place during the school holidays, but due to the urgency – a number of leaks have occurred – it cannot be put off any longer. The Gas Company will start work on 23rd July and run through to 29th August. There may need to be some restricted weekend working to ensure that the work is done within the agreed timescales.

Our Traffic & Highways Work team do not expect these two sets of works to impact on each other, but it does represent the potential for traffic disruption in Wallington throughout the summer.

Perhaps some good weather will tempt residents to leave their cars at home and walk or use public transport instead!
