Work on the gas mains beneath London Road, West Thurrock is set to take place between May and October 2019.
Works are being carried out by Cadent Gas engineers as part of a planned programme to replace their gas mains.
From Tuesday 7 May, London Road will be closed to westbound traffic and diversions will be in place.
|When||Tuesday 7 May until October 2019.|
|Where||London Road, from Motherwell Way and West Thurrock Way.|
|How your journey may be affected||London Road will be closed to westbound traffic. Diversions for through-traffic will be west along Oliver Road and St Clements Way. Local traffic will be diverted along West Thurrock Way and Motherwell Way.|
During this time you should allow more time for your journey if visiting intu Lakeside shopping centre and retail park, or other places nearby.
Bus routes in London Road will continue to operate but with some alterations to stops – go to the Ensignbus website for their latest timetables.
Waste collections for residents of London Road will continue on their usual days of the week. Our waste crews will start an hour earlier than usual, at 5am instead of 6am, to allow more time to complete their rounds. This may mean that waste collections take place at a different time while the works are taking place.
Our staff will be on site to check that traffic is flowing as smoothly as possible. We'll keep residents up-to-date with advice on alternative routes.
Why these works are taking place
Cadent Gas is replacing the old pipeline as part of its annual programme to upgrade the gas network. Further works will be carried out by Cadent at later dates, making the gas supply safer and more reliable for residents in the area.
