We have been informed that a new gas main will be installed from Byfield to Woodford Halse. The official notice says this will be starting on 30th September 2019.
This will be from the ‘five ways’ mini roundabouts all the way to the new Woodford housing estate. Traffic management and subsequent road closures will be in place from 30th September.
Recent communication from the contractor (thanks to Steve Bartlett for this) adds the following information:-
“With regards to your enquiry we will have a slight delay in beginning our works on this project. The works will likely start between 07/10 and 14/10 depending on the teams current works. For the majority of the project we will be using temporary traffic signals but will close the Woodford Road from 04/11/19 – 25/11/19. Access will be maintained for residents via Byfield Road but a hard closure will be in place on Woodford Road from the double roundabouts to it’s junction with Fessey Road. We will aim to have the project completed by 02/12/19 but this is very dependent on what is found on site. If we encounter network issues the duration may change.”
Attached is a drawing of the works and a copy of the proposed diversion route during the closure.
