Banister Road will be closed from Tuesday 29 August to Sunday 3 September 2017, a small section of Kilburn Lane which falls under Westminster’s control will also need to be closed to prevent the narrow section Kilburn Lane been used as a rat run whilst Banister Road is closed.

Cecil Avenue - Road Closure from High Road to Rosemead Avenue - 29/8/17 to 2/9/17

The development on Cecil Avenue at the junction of High Road, Wembley (formerly Valiant House) requires a new Sewer connection and the only safe way for these works to go ahead will need Cecil Avenue to be closed from the junction of High Road to Rosemead Avenue.

Cecil Avenue will be closed from Tuesday 29th August to Saturday 2nd September, traffic will be diverted to London Road and a signed diversion will be in place. The Banned right turn from London Road on to High Road will be temporarily suspended for the duration of the works.

A406 Staples Corner flyover maintenance - Monday 28 August to Wednesday 20 September 2017

Essential maintenance works to the A406 Staples Corner flyover will take place from Monday 28 August to Wednesday 20 September 2017. TFL will need to close the A406 fully at Staples Corner at times. Local access will be maintained and all businesses in the area can remain open as usual. Access will be maintained via the slip roads around Staples Corner.

We will be making every effort to encourage drivers from further afield to avoid using the flyover during the works via a significant communications campaign and advanced signage. Roads will be extremely busy and significant delays are expected in the area. We apologise in advance for the inconvenience caused by the works

Major Road Works – Edgware Road junction with Dollis Hill Lane – 26 June 2017 to 4 December 2017

The new permanent access to the development will be signal controlled and incorporated into the existing signals, three way junction into a four way junction, these section 278 works will be undertaken by Conway Aecom.

The impact to the Edgware Road is significant, currently there are two running lanes in each direction but for the duration of these works, there will only be one lane in each direction. Vehicles will be prohibited from turning right from Edgware Road onto Dollis Hill Lane and turning left from Dollis Hill Lane onto Edgware Road from. There will also be a series of night time closure from10:00 to 05:00 on Dollis Hill Lane, Dollis Hill Avenue and Oxgate Gardens but a suitable diversion will be signed at all times.

There will be a severe impact on traffic, especially at peak times, if possible please avoid the area.

Diversions

If a closure is required a diversion route may need to be signed to assist traffic to find a suitable way around the closure and to minimise disruption.

The cost of installing, maintaining and removing diversion route signing is usually the responsibility of those organising the work. The cost will vary depending on the type of work.

The minimum notice period is ten weeks. In all cases the diversion must be agreed in advance with us and the police.
