Progress Update and Next Steps

WCC are pleased to confirm that the major construction works associated with the scheme have now been completed. You will notice a reduced presence of our contractor FM Conway on-site. 

Surface treatment works are now underway and are the only remaining activity left as part of Phase 4. A total of 17 night-time road closures (during the hours of 20:00 and 06:00) are scheduled to take place between now and Monday 19th August. A road closure summary is provided at the bottom of the page. 

Summer Works - Snagging and Lighting Columns

In July our maintenance team will be on-site dealing with defects and snagging issues that have been reported to us. 

If you would like to raise a defect for the maintenance team to address please do so via: https://www.westminster.gov.uk/report-it 

Alternatively, to report a problem with a traffic signal please using the following link: https://tfl.gov.uk/help-and-contact/contact-us-about-streets-and-other-road-issues 

A number of lighting columns still require connecting to the electricity network. Consequently, UK Power Networks will be on-site in the coming weeks, working to address this in collaboration with our team. The works will involve some small-scale excavation of the footway to gain suitable access. Please be assured that footways will be properly reinstated.  

Autumn 2019 - December 2019

During October, traffic surveys will be undertaken as part of the Monitoring Strategy. The results will be analysed and compared with traffic data that was collated before the implementation of the scheme. The purpose of this exercise is to ascertain how the switch to two-way operation has affected traffic patterns. A report will be published in December detailing the outcomes and any mitigation that may be required.
