Part of Mill Lane will be closed for eight weeks starting on Tuesday May 6th. There has been surprisingly little notice of this. The work is to replace metal gas mains with plastic mains.
The National Grid says
“The closures and restrictions will be introduced in phases as the work progresses from Shoot Up Hill towards Westbere Road.
Mill Lane will be closed between Shoot Up Hill and Fordwych Road with access maintained via local diversion routes
Fordwyich Road will be partially closed at the junction with Mill Lane, with access to properties being maintained via local diversion routes
Mill Lane will be closed one way Westbound between Westbere Road and Fordywch Road with access being maintained cia local diversion routes.
Some areas of parking will need to be suspended to facilitae excavation operations and traffic flows around our work areas.
It’s not clear whether these closures are just the first phase of closures or all the closures listed together. More information as we get it!
