Emergency Closure – Fagg’s Road, Hatton

February 10, 2010

I received the following this morning:

“We have been advised by a contractor working on behalf of Thames Water that they need to carry out emergency works to a collapsed sewer in Fagg’s Road near to its junction with Green Man Lane. Due to the depth of the sewer and the size of excavation required it will be necessary to close Fagg’s Road in both directions whilst the works are carried out.

The closure will be put in place at 9.30am tomorrow, Thursday 11 February. It is anticipated that the works will take two weeks to complete. If work is completed earlier then the road will be opened earlier.

Due to the urgent nature of the works it has not been possible to have advance warning signs erected, but signs will be placed on all approaches tomorrow morning to advise drivers of the closure and the expect duration.

The diversion route for southbound traffic is the A30 to its junction with the A4 (Henleys Roundabout) to return along the A30 and make the left turn into A312 The Causeway. The route for northbound traffic is to continue along the A312 The Causeway and make the left turn onto the A30. Access into and out of the industrial estate and Green Man Lane will only be possible from the Hatton Cross side of the closure. Access into and out of Hatton Green will only be possible from the A312 side of the closure. Transport for London will monitor the key junctions and if necessary adjust the traffic signal timings where they can, but delays are to be expected on the diversion routes.

London Buses are aware of the closure and the buses 90, 285, 490 and X26 will also divert onto the A30 and A312 and will not be serving the bus stops opposite Hatton Green.”
