Thames Water are planning to replace mains in West Norwood which could involve digging a trench down Norwood Road, from Palace Road to Robson Road, creating traffic havoc for many months.
The work is scheduled to begin in March 2019 however it is unlikely that all the necessary approvals and checks will have been made in time and May+ is more realistic. The work could take 3 – 6 months and possibly longer. In a worst case scenario buses will be diverted, two-way traffic staggered and pedestrians inconvenienced. There will also be a serious impact on local businesses.
