SGN, the company carrying out major gas works on Grand Drive have shared with us some information, which we’ve included below:
Latest update on Grand Drive Gas Works from SGN.
“The project started as planned on 23 July and will last approximately 20 weeks. However, following feedback from stakeholders and the local community, SGN have worked with London Borough of Merton to agree a new phased plan of work to minimise disruption. They will now be working in three overlapping phases as follows.
To ensure everyone’s safety Grand Drive will be made one-way southbound for the duration of our works. A signed diversion will be in place for northbound traffic. Access will be maintained for residents by following the diversion routes.
Phase one – Grand Drive, between Church Walk and Bushey Road
They will start the project with two teams both working in Grand Drive from its junction with Church Walk towards Bushey Road. As this phase progresses, one of the teams will move to begin work on phase two.
Phase two – Grand Drive, between Blenheim Road and Church Walk
During this phase, one of the teams will begin working in Grand Drive at its junction with Blenheim Road and work towards the junction with Church Walk.
Grand Drive will remain one-way southbound to ensure everyone’s safety. However, as work progresses during this phase, they are hoping to be able to re-open some small sections of Grand Drive for northbound traffic to allow residents on Grand Drive to exit their homes and travel north. Grand Drive will remain closed for northbound through traffic and motorists should still follow signed diversion.
Phase three – Grand Drive, between Heath Drive and Westway
Both teams will be working in conjunction on Grand Drive, starting at its junction with Heath Drive and heading south towards its junction with Westway.
Grand Drive will remain one-way southbound to ensure everyone’s safety. Some small sections of Grand Drive may now be open for northbound traffic to allow residents on Grand Drive to exit their homes and travel north. However, Grand Drive will remain closed for northbound through traffic and motorists should still follow signed diversion.
