Transport for London has made us aware of emergency works by Thames Water taking place on Kennington Lane at the junction of South Lambeth Road to investigate and repair a major leak. To accommodate these works the following traffic management has been put in place:
· Southbound lane one closure at Albert Embankment at the junction of Vauxhall Cross
· Eastbound lane three closure on Kennington Lane between the junctions of South Lambeth Road and Albert Embankment
· Northbound lanes two and three closed on Harleyford Road between the junctions of Vauxhall Grove and South Lambeth Road
Works commenced yesterday, Sunday 19 June 2011 and Thames Water have committed resources to 24/7 working until the leak is repaired.
Once Thames Water have repaired their main there are also additional TfL, BT and UKPN cable damage which will be repaired within the existing traffic management.
TfL anticipate significant disruption to vehicular traffic and to mitigate this, TfL will have electronic Variable Messaging Signs (VMS) strategically placed in the area to pre-warn drivers of these works. TfL has worked closely with the London Borough of Lambeth in order to reduce the impact of these works on road users, local people and businesses as far as possible.
TfL apologises in advance for any inconvenience that may be caused because of these essential works. Should you require further information or an update during the delivery of these works please contact our Streets Customer Services department on 0845 305 1234 or via our website at www.tfl.gov.uk/contact
