Recent essential sewer works near the Teddington gate of Bushy Park Chestnut Avenue have led to tailbacks in all directions during busy times and now delays are set to continue for a different reason.
Twickenham Road has had sections resurfaced recently in preparation for the Olympic cycling road races. Now ageing gas pipes are causing concern – Richmond Council have held urgent talks with the gas board and brought forward repair work in order to minimise any impact along the Olympic cycling route.
From Monday 21st May, Park Road will be closed in one direction when work starts to replace the ageing Victorian gas mains that have led to many leaks over recent months. The work that will lead to traffic and parking disruption in the area, is expected to last for 7 weeks but be completed well before the races on July 28th/29th.
