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.

Thames Water  contact details are: customer.feedback@thameswater.co.uk quoting job 210376
