    Start date: Friday 4 August 2017
    Approximate duration: 14 months 

    We are working to upgrade the gas network in Brixton Road in the London Borough of Lambeth. 

    We are investing £2.4 million to replace our old gas mains with new plastic pipe to ensure a continued safe and reliable gas supply to the local area. 

    We’ve planned this work in close collaboration with Transport for London (TfL) and Lambeth Council. Due to the burst water main in Brixton Hill, we have delayed the start of our project until the water main repairs are completed. In agreement with TfL, we will now start our Brixton Road project on Friday 4 August 2017. 

    We’ll be working southwards along Brixton Road from Camberwell New Road towards Normandy Road in small stages. 

    To ensure everyone’s safety, we need to put lane restrictions in place around our work area in Brixton Road for the duration of the project. More information can be found in our project information leaflet

    We would encourage road users to please plan ahead and allow extra time for your journey. You can find advice on planning your journey on Transport for London’s website.

    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, people will continue to enjoy the benefits of a safe and reliable gas supply for years to come.


    Update: 7 August 2018

    We’re now working to connect the existing mains and services in the side roads to our new pipe in Brixton Road. Over the coming three months, we need to put lane closures in place in Brixton Road as we work in selected side roads between Offley Road and Normandy Road. This will keep everyone safe around our site. However, we will maintain two-way traffic along Brixton Road at all times. 

    We’ll be working in Offley Road, Cranmer Road, Crewdson Road, Hillyard Street and Normandy Road in phases. When we’re working in each of these roads, we’ll need to close its junction with Brixton Road. We’ll have advance notice signs and diversion route signs in place for local residents during each of the closures.
