Carshalton Road: Temporary One-Way at the Railway Bridge at end of April/early May 2012

Jill, Alan and Hamish received the following letter from the Council highways officers recently:-

Dear Councillors,

In order to facilitate highway kerbing works on the railway bridge in Carshalton Road, Sutton (A232), and because of the likelihood of danger to the public arising from the said works, a Temporary Traffic Management Order will be made.

Further information on the temporary restrictions / prohibitions which will come into operation on Monday 30th April 2012 can be obtained from David Waugh (tel. 020 8770 6431). It is anticipated that the works will take ten nights to complete.

The Order will come into effect on Monday 30 April 2012 with works taking place at night between the hours of 8.30 p.m. and 5.30 a.m. Mondays to Fridays and are expected to take 10 nights to complete. However, the Order will remain in force for 18 months to be re-introduced should further works be required.

When the works are taking place and the appropriate traffic signs are displayed the Order will temporarily close:-

(a) Harrow Road at its junction with Carshalton Road; and

(b) the southern footway in Carshalton Road between its junction with Harrow Road and the eastern property boundary of Weihurst Court, Carshalton Road.

Whilst the Order is in force, an alternative route for through vehicular traffic will be suitably signed.
