Wednesday 17 October – Wimbledon Park Road, Southfields

We received today the following update from SGN regarding the ongoing gas works.  The key points of note are:

  • Engineers have completed repairs to our gas main in Replingham Road; reinstatement will begin today
  • The installation of new gas mains along Wimbledon Park Road is complete; reinstatement begins shortly
  • The process to replace excavations with tarmac can take up to two weeks
  • A gas leak on a nearby gas main in Wimbledon Park Road has been discovered, unrelated to current works; repair plans and impact on local roads TBC

For additional information, please see this page from SGN, which will be updated as works progress.

For further enquires, please email Paige Roberts, Stakeholder and Community Manager, at paige.roberts@sgn.co.uk.

We’re continuing to carry out urgent work in Replingham Road and gas network upgrades to nearby pipes in Wimbledon Park Road.

Our engineers have completed repairs to our gas main in Replingham Road and reinstatement will begin today. Replingham Road remains closed at this time between Wimbledon Park Road and Elsenham Street to ensure everyone’s safety around our site. A signed diversion via Merton Road and Granville Road is in place for motorists.

We’ve completed the installation of new gas mains along Wimbledon Park Road and we’ve been carrying out tests over the weekend. We’ll shortly be commencing reinstatement work to restore the road surface to its original condition. The process to replace our excavations with tarmac can take up to two weeks.

While our engineers carry out upgrades in Wimbledon Park Road, temporary three-way traffic lights remain in place at its junction with Augustus Road. We’re continuing to monitor these traffic lights 24 hours a day to avoid any further disruption to motorists.

Unfortunately, we’ve discovered a gas leak on a nearby gas main in Wimbledon Park Road, adjacent to Sainsbury’s, which is unconnected to our current work being carried out. We’re currently in consultation with the local council to determine the traffic management required for us to safely repair our network and manage traffic flow around our existing site. We’ll publish details of our plans here once confirmed.

If you have any further queries please let me know

Kind regards

Paige
