Traffic is flowing northwards along Knights Hill again today. Shops in West Norwood are open for business – just in time for last-minute Christmas shopping in our local shops.
Due to a burst watermain last Sunday the road was closed causing massive disruption to residents and businesses. Northbound buses were diverted by Streatham Common and Streatham High Road as Leigham Court Road was also closed due to a burst water main! Homes had no water supply for several days.

Councillors will be meeting Thames Water early in the new year to agree on improvements for dealing with emergency road works and to demand Thames Water invests more in its mains pipes.
West Norwood has already had years of disruption from Thames Water installing new mains in Leigham Vale and Norwood Road. See our many earlier posts including : 23/1/2019 7/2/2017
