Chamberlayne Road area upcoming works in 2018

Updated 6 June 2018: Please note, these revised dates are estimates and every effort will be made to complete the scheme as soon as possible.

  • Cadent Gas will be undertaking major works on Chamberlayne Road from 7 May to 10 August 2018 -During this time there will be periods when Clifford Gardens will be closed at the junction of Chamberlayne Road. Clifford Gardens is normally a one way road which exits on to Chamberlayne Road but to increase traffic flow on Chamberlayne Road we have decided to turn Clifford Road into a two way road, this requires the suspension of at least 33 parking bays on Clifford Road to allow for passing spaces and turning. It has been agreed that resident permit holders of KL zone can park in KH and KR zones for the duration of the closure.

  • Major works commence Wrentham Avenue - 7 May to 30 June 2018 – Major works commence from the junction of Wrentham Avenue to the south side of the northern bridge near Kensal Rise Station. Traffic will be controlled with two way temporary signals, Wrentham Avenue and Clifford Gardens will be closed at the junction with Chamberlayne Road.

  • Clifford Gardens will remain closed at the junction of Chamberlayne Road until 13 July 2018
  • Works between two bridges on Chamberlayne Road - 1 July 2018 to 18 August 2018 – Works continue between the two bridges on Chamberlayne Road (Chevening Road to Harvist Road). A directional road closure will be in place to control traffic, Northbound traffic will be diverted via Banister Road, Kilburn Lane, Salusbury Road, Brondesbury Park and Sidmouth Road. Side roads will be closed at the junction of Chamberlayne Road as and when required and there will be banned left and right turns onto Chamberlayne Road.

  • Notting Hill Carnival - 25 August to 27 August 2018 - Chamberlayne Road will be clear for Notting Hill Carnival.

  • Works continue southern bridge to Banister Road - 28 August to 14 October 2018 – Works continue from southern bridge to Banister Road. At this time it may be possible to remove the directional closure and control traffic with two way temporary signals, it this is not possible then the directional closure will remain in place.

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.
