Good morning

Notification of major gas works: Augustus Road, Southfields – Wednesday 6 February UPDATE

I am writing to provide you with an update regarding our gas network upgrade in Augustus Road, Southfields

In consultation with Wandsworth Council, we started work week commencing Monday 7 January. We are working in Augustus Road between its junctions with Surtherland Grove and Wimbledon Park Road for approximately six weeks.

To maintain the gas supply to the local area, we will need to lay a new pipe across Augustus Road to connect onto our existing gas mains. Due to this additional work and for everyone’s continued safety, we’ll need to close Augustus Road to motorist travelling in both directions, from 5pm on Friday 15 February until midday on Monday 18 February.

Augustus Road will be closed from its junction with Sutherland Grove to its junction with Wimbledon Park Road and signed diversions will be in place for motorist while we carry out our work at this location. TFL Buses have been consulted and due to the location of the gas pipes, route 493 will not be able to serve Southfields Station.

While working onsite on Augustus Road, our engineers have encountered some engineering difficulties, we now need to adopt an open-cut technique to carry out replacement at this location. For safety reasons we may need to extend the duration of our temporary lane closure on Augustus Road, however this will be agreed with Wandsworth Council and we will notify local residents.

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.

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

If you have any further queries, please let me know

Kind regards
