The traffic around Staines Road & Hounslow Road was very bad yesterday evening. There are temporary lights near to Baber Bridge.
I received the following this afternoon:
“National Grid Gas is renewing the medium pressure gas mains in Staines Road between the junction with Hounslow Road and the junction Wellington Road South. The works will be completed by Christmas.
I spoke to the Project Engineer this afternoon and he told me that the temporary traffic lights will be in place until next weekend due to the size and poor condition of the mains.
They will be working extended hours, 7 days a week and the lights will be manned between 8am and 7pm to minimize delays.
Our Area Highway Inspector will visit the site daily to monitor progress.”
