A letter to the WWRA
Notification of major gas works: Croydon Road, Beckenham
I am writing to make you aware of our forthcoming upgrade of our gas network in Croydon Road, Beckenham. This essential work involves the replacement of old metal gas mains with new plastic pipe to ensure we continue to provide a safe and reliable gas supply to the local area. Our contractor JDT Utilities will undertake this work on our behalf.
So that we can minimise disruption, we have carefully consulted and planned our work in partnership with Bromley Borough Council. We have agreed to start our project on Sunday 21 July and last approximately six weeks. Our engineers will be working in three phases as follows:
Phase 1 – Croydon Road, junction with Elmers End Road
Phase 2 – Croydon Road, between junction of Elmers End Road and Clockhouse Road
Phase 3 – Elmerside Road, junction with Croydon Road
Throughout all phases of our work signed diversions will be in place for motorists and pedestrian access will be maintained.
We need to temporarily close The Elmers End Tesco bus stand at St Margarets Road to buses/traffic during phases one and two of our works. Therefore no buses will stop or serve the stops at the bus stand. There will be a temporary bus stand at the Elmerside Green Roundabout but for full info regarding bus services, please check TfL website: https://tfl.gov.uk/modes/buses/.
Our engineers will be working extended hours Monday – Saturday between 8am and 6pm to minimise disruption.
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, Beckenham businesses and residents will continue to enjoy the benefits of a safe and reliable gas supply for years to come.
Full details including maps can be found in our attached project leaflet and you can find more information about this project, and other works in your area, at Roadworks.org here: https://roadworks.org/?113553845
Please share this information with anyone you think may be impacted by our work.
I hope I have been able to reassure you of our commitment to deliver a safe project and keep you updated. If you have any further questions, please let me know.
