Traffic conditions in Brentford are getting worse currently with major roadworks onthe High Street.

Significant jams have already been taken place due to the closure of Hammersmith Bridge and the enabling works around Kew Bridge associated with the planned cycle highway.

Now two utility companies are digging up the High Street opposite the Ballymore development to make changes to underground pipes serving the project. Thames Water is undertaking the excavation with a hand digger to avoid damaging the water mains.

Both gas and water supply will be worked on with Cadent digging up the gas pipes and Thames Water connection up a new water supply for a public house which would otherwise have been cut off due to changes being made for the new development.

The works currently taking place and are now scheduled to be completed by Sunday 26th January. It was first expected that work would be completed a few days earlier. Work will take place this weekend to speed up the works.

The road will remain open but traffic will be controlled with multi-way signals controlled manually.

Traffic delays beyond even that currently being experienced in the area is anticipated and motorists are advised to avoid Brentford High Street if they can.

If residents have any issues they should contact 0800 316 9800 to raise them.
