End in sight for Thames Water roadworks

Thames Water have revised their plans for Norwood Road again and will now not finish until 19th August 2020. The works are considered essential works so they are continuing during lockdown but at a slower pace due to social distancing.

The last 200m of mains pipes from Chatsworth Way to Robson Road will not be completed by Thames Water. Live waste water and other pipes have been found too close to the water main making it too difficult to replace the main.

Currently we have 2 sets of lane closures on Norwood Road controlled by traffic lights.  Norwood Road at Knights Hill end will be re-opened to two-way traffic from the evening of Friday 24tH April. The traffic lights for the single lane outside Texaco garage will stay till the end of June. 

The final stage of the mains replacement project will attach the 630m of new pipe to the main at Tulse Hill , involving a temporary diversion of the main so there is no disruption to the water supply.  So from Monday 27th April there be lane closures again on Tulse Hill near its junction with Perran Road and some bus diversions around the one-way system. .

Robson Road will remain closed to north/west bound traffic. So the Herne Hill bound 322 bus will remain on diversion.

Thames Water intend to deliver a letter very soon with details of their plans to all households in the local area.

Thames Water is a private company owned by a series of investment companies through Kemble Water Holdings Ltd. It is regulated under the Water Industry Act 1991.

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.
