Thames Water Mains Works 2019 now to continue to 20 December

It was announced at yesterday’s public meeting, that the current phase of works along Norwood Road will now not end on 14 December but continue to Friday 20 December 2019. This is to enable the works at Lancaster Avenue to be completed before Christmas and so remove the need to close Lancaster Avenue again in 2020.  The remaining work of this phase is to complete the Elmcourt Road to Ullswater Road section of new pipe, excavate some trial holes and do the connections to the new pipe work.
