Resurfacing of the A3 Kennington Lane will be taking place for approximately two weeks, starting on 14th February 2016.
Why is the road being resurfaced?
This work is part of the Road Modernisation Plan, the biggest investment for a generation consisting of hundreds of projects to transform junctions, bridges, tunnels and pedestrian areas.
The road has reached the end of its serviceable life and a new road will provide a smooth and safe surface and also avoid the need for further maintenance in the near future.
What is the time scale for these works?
The works are planned to start on Sunday 14 February 2016 and continue for approximately two weeks, depending on the weather conditions.
The works will be carried out between 21:00 and 05:00, Sunday to Thursday nights only.
Diversion routes will be in place via Kennington Road, Kennington Park Road, Kennington Oval and Harleyford Road as well as minor localised diversions. Where road closures are unnecessary, there will be some lane closures and temporary pedestrian facilities to ensure the safety of those using the road.
Every effort will be made to ensure that noisy operations are completed before midnight although vehicle reversing warning beepers will be in use to protect workers and the public. Access for emergency services will be maintained at all times during the works.
