We are working to upgrade the gas network in Bromley Common.
We are investing £169,000 to replace our old gas mains and services with new plastic pipe to ensure a continued safe and reliable gas supply to the local area.
In consultation with the London Borough of Bromley and Transport for London, we will start our project on Monday 7 August.
We’ll be working in Bromley Common between Masons Hill and Chantry Lane. To ensure everyone’s safety, we need to install temporary four-way traffic lights for the first stage of our project. The temporary lights will be in place in Bromley Common at the junction with Hayes Lane, Homesdale Road and Mason Hill for approximately four weeks.
TFL will be using some new technology that enables them to monitor traffic flow during the works and adjust the timings of their temporary traffic lights accordingly. This should keep disruption to a minimum, but we still advise you to allow a little extra time to complete your journey. You can find advice on planning your journey on Transport for London’s website.
At the start of September, our engineers will begin to progress southwards along Bromley Common towards Chantry Lane. Works will be mainly in the footpath, however a lane closure will be required outside of rush hours. This phase will last approximately six weeks.
We understand that people can get frustrated by roadworks. However, we’ll be doing everything we can to minimise disruption including working extended hours and at weekends. The new plastic pipe has a minimum lifespan of 80 years. This means that when the work is complete, Bromley residents will continue to enjoy the benefits of a safe and reliable gas supply for years to come.
