Monday 17 September – Southfields Gas Works – UPDATE

We received following email update from Paige Roberts at SGN regarding the on-going gas works. The key bit of new information is that ” for safety reasons we need to extend the duration of our temporary road closure and traffic lights on Wimbledon Park Road and Replingham Road by approximately three weeks.”  Three weeks’ additional time will therefore extend the road closures to approximately end October.

Please contact Paige at SGN using the contact details at the end of the email should you have any questions.

The full email is as follows:

Subject: Monday 17 September – Wimbledon Park Road and Replingham Road, Southfields – UPDATE

 

Good evening

I am writing to provide you with an update regarding our gas network upgrade in Wimbledon Park Road and Replingham Road.

Works on Replingham Road have progressed well and gas supplies to the local businesses on this section will be renewed outside normal business hours to avoid loss of business to the premises. Residents in close proximity to these works will be notified by one of our managers.

While working onsite on Wimbledon Park Road, our engineers have encountered some engineering difficulties where the gas main outside Townends premises has been found to be encased in concrete. In close consultation with Wandsworth Council, for safety reasons we need to extend the duration of our temporary road closure and traffic lights on Wimbledon Park Road and Replingham Road by approximately three weeks.

Our working area will be extended to outside 277/279 Wimbledon Park Road (edit: outside of Franco Manca pizza) to ensure the connection is carried out further along. The local authority and TFL buses were updated earlier today.

Please share this update with your own stakeholders and anyone who you believe may be impacted by our work.

I apologise for any inconvenience these changes may cause and we will be doing everything we can to minimise disruption and complete our replacement as safely and quickly as possible.

If you have any further queries please let me know

Kind regards

Paige Roberts
