Bringing People Together
Thames Water will be carrying out emergency sewer repairs on Hampton Court Road, from tomorrow (25 October), prior to road resurfacing works due to start next week.
The utility company contacted the Council to request access to the road prior to the resurfacing works commencing. Therefore, from 7am – 7pm for one week, temporary two way traffic signals will be in place. These will be manually operated at peak times.
Following these sewer repairs, a section of Hampton Court Road will be closed for resurfacing work between 8pm and 5am from Sunday, October 30 to Thursday, November 3.
The resurfacing work will be carried out at night to minimise disruption to traffic and will take place on Hampton Court Road between Church Street and Tagg's Island. Access will remain for residential traffic and emergency response vehicles. The road closure and diversion will be in operation when the work begins and will be clearly signposted.
Bus services will be affected by this work and for further information contact London Buses on 0343 222 1234.
Richmond Council's Cabinet Member for Highways and Streetscene, Cllr Peter Buckwell, said:
"We know that drivers get frustrated by road works. However, we feel that if Thames Water carryout these emergency works during half term, in advance of the nightime closure for the road resurfacing, it will minimise possible longer term disruption.
“We have stressed to Thames Water the importance that their works stay to time and do not delay our resurfacing works. We will closely monitor their works.
“The Council would like to reassure residents that we will make every effort to complete the resurfacing work as planned and keep inconvenience to the absolute minimum.”
