TfL to start major works on Streatham High Road from Monday

We have just received notice that Transport for London (TfL) is about to start major work on Streatham High Road from Monday, that will go on to the end of March.

Lambeth Council apparently know about it, but (once again) this appears to be the first time that many local people have been told about it.

TfL has appointed ConwayAecom to carry out the 'footway improvement works' on the High Road, between the junctions with Hopton Road and Streatham Common South.

The works area is shown on the location map below.

The objective is to renew the footway on this stretch and upgrade the crossing area on Streatham Common South (parkside).  It's part of TfL's Road Modernisation Plan

The works will start on Monday 26 January and are due to continue to Tuesday 31 March 2015.

The working hours will be between 08:00 and 18:00 for weekday footway works "with no obstruction to the carriageway".

Works that require lane closures on the carriageway are programmed to be undertaken between 22:00 and 05:00 on weekdays "to avoid major traffic disruptions, due to these stretches being a pinch point for traffic during the day". All noisy works during this period would be restricted to finish at 00:00.

TfL say "a certain level of disruption is inevitable",

Please let us know if you are a local resident and you have been told about it.  Please also let us know if this impacts you in any way once the work begins, and we will do all we can to help.

  1. Many thanks for the heads up. My name is Christian and I work for a moving company which offers man and van services in Streatham. We have two clients who need to move out of the SW16 this Monday and this information will be of use. Frankly I didn't know about this construction. I guess I should check the media more often.

    Anyway thanks again.
    Best Move Man and Van owes you!
