Simone Drive road closure – 9th October

Croydon Council will be carrying out long-awaited resurfacing work on Simone Drive on Wednesday 9th October. The road will be closed for the duration with extremely limited access.

The fact that this work is finally happening is partly due to the persistence of the WURA secretary in raising awareness of the poor state of the road surface with the council over the last few months.

Road closure – 24th to 28th September, inclusive

Carriageway reconstruction is to take place between the Tuesday 24th and Saturday 28th of September 2019 between the speed ramp opposite 134 Welcomes Road and lamp post 24 on the verge on the first bend near 157 Welcomes Road. We hope that the road will be open again by the Saturday but please do not rely on it as it can not be guaranteed.

The contractor, J C Allfreys Co.Ltd., may need to carry out deep excavations to divert the flow of water from an underground spring which is causing subsidence to the road surface  possibly resulting in the complete closure of this stretch of road.  

The contractor will try to keep disruption to the minimum endeavouring if possible to allow the residents living directly opposite the works access to their property. 

Through traffic MUST  be prepared to use alternative routes to avoid this section of the road.

Please forewarn any visitors or deliveries that you are expecting between those dates.  The  contractor’s plant may be parked in Uplands Road near the Welcomes Road junction overnight.

We will issue further bulletins as the work progresses and will be writing to the residents directly affected about parking arrangements.
