    Start date: Friday 4 August 2017
    Approximate duration: Seven 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: Friday 8 September
    Our Brixton Road project is progressing well. Our engineers have progressed away from Camberwell New Road junction and we’ve reopened the cycle track at this junction. Our engineers are now working further south along Brixton Road between Prima Road and Cranmer Road. The outside lanes in either direction remain closed around our area with all traffic filtered through the bus lanes.
