• Carshalton (SM5)
    Boundary Road

     

    Start date: 30 April 2018
    Approximate duration: Five months

     

    We are working to upgrade the gas network in the B271 Boundary Road area of Carshalton. 

    We are investing £220,000 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 Sutton Council, we will start work in Boundary Road on Monday 30 April and will be completing our work in three phases.

    Phase 1

    Our engineers will be working on the east side of Boundary Road between Stanley Park Road and the railway line. Boundary Road will remain open throughout our project but parking will be suspended around our work area.

    When we reach Beddington Gardens, we will need to close this junction until we have progressed safely past. A signed diversion will be in place.

    Phase 2

    Our second phase will take place on Stanley Park Road between Boundary Road and Woodcote Road. As we progress past Holmwood Gardens/Park Hill Road, we will need to put temporary traffic lights in Stanley Park Road at this junction for everyone’s safety. These side roads will be closed until we have progressed past safely. Signed diversions will be in place.

    Phase 3

    We will return to Boundary Road and the bottom section of Park Lane to carry out work on the west side of the carriageway. The road will remain open but we will need to suspend parking around our site.

    When we reach Beddington Gardens and Grosvenor Road/Grosvenor Avenue, we will need to install temporary traffic lights in Boundary Road at these junctions for safety. These junctions will be closed until we have progressed safely past and signed diversions will be in place.

    When we upgrade our gas network at the Boundary Road/Stanley Park Road roundabout, we will need to have temporary traffic lights across the roundabout to keep traffic flowing safely around our work area.

    The project is expected to be finished around mid-September.

    We understand that people can get frustrated by roadworks. However, the new plastic pipe has a minimum lifespan of 80 years. This means that when the work is complete, Carshalton residents will continue to enjoy the benefits of a safe and reliable gas supply for years to come.
