Sunday’s Putney Bridge Road closure cancelled
Published: Friday 20th February 15
The planned closure of Putney Bridge Road for resurfacing work this Sunday (Feb 22) has been cancelled.
The road will be fully open on Sunday with no traffic restrictions in place and all bus stops will be in operation.
Instead, the road will be closed on Sunday 1 March and on Sunday 8 March between the hours of 9am and 4pm. A traffic diversion will be in operation on these days.
The additional full Sunday closure will mean that the planned roadworks for Tuesday and Wednesday next week do not need to go ahead. As a result there will be no traffic disruption on these days and the entire road will be fully operational.
The changed timetable is in response to long period of heavy rain this week which affected progress and increased local traffic disruption.
The project is seeing large areas of the road surface between Armoury Way and Putney High Street broken out and replaced.
Throughout the resurfacing project work is being undertaken between the hours of 9am and 4pm to avoid peak traffic levels.
The project is part of the council’s roads investment programme which is essential to keeping the local network in the best possible condition.
The work is being carried out by contractor FM Conway on behalf of the council.
