    Parkers-Row-SE1-night

    We’re continuing our emergency repairs to our gas main near the A200 Jamaica Road.

    Our engineers have worked throughout the day in a difficult location to locate the leak in our main and will continue to work throughout the night to make the situation safe. This is very complex engineering work and it looks likely it will take our engineers until at least Thursday to find the exact location of the leak and carry out essential repairs.  

    To ensure everyone's safety, residents of Wade House flats in Parkers Row have been temporarily evacuated and are being put up in hotels again this evening.

    The eastbound bus lane in the road between its junctions for Dockhead and Abbey Street remains temporarily closed. Traffic can still travel in both directions.

    We'll be working 24/7 to make sure we complete our repairs as soon as possible. We'll post more information here on Wednesday morning.
