Roadworks in Hare Lane

As you will be aware Thames Water have been working in Hare Lane since 31st July. They are replacing the water main which should lead to less water leaks in an area notorious for leaks in the past.

We have contacted SCC's Street Works Team and Thames Water as we are concerned about progress and the likelihood of severe congestion when pupils return to Milbourne Lodge and Shaftesbury House Schools later this week.  SCC have assured us that the work is being monitored and is on schedule to be completed by 1st October.  We have also been told that as the work progresses away from the junction with Arbrook Lane, Littleworth Road and Milbourne Lane, the traffic lights will continue to move further away from this junction and, as a result, congestion is expected to reduce.
