Essential gas network repairs – Wimbledon Park Road and Replingham Road, Wimbledon

We are writing to make you aware of our urgent repairs to our gas network in Wimbledon Park Road area of Wimbledon. This essential work will ensure a continued safe and reliable gas supply to Wimbledon for many years to come.

In close consultation with Wandsworth Council we will carry out our repair from Tuesday 28 August and expect our upgrades to last approximately six weeks.

To keep motorists and our engineers safe around our work area, we will need to close Replingham Road between Wimbledon Park Road and Elsenham Street. Traffic leaving Elsenham Street will only be able to turn right on Replingham Road and a signed diversion via Merton Road and Granville Road will be in place for motorists.

Wimbledon Park Road is also closed to southbound traffic at Replingham Road. We’ve installed temporary three-way traffic lights in Wimbledon Park Road at this junction to maintain traffic flow.

We will also need to suspend the central crossing and the bus stop outside 259 Wimbledon Park Road, commuters will be diverted to the nearest alternative.

We’ve agreed with the local council that while we are repairing our gas main in Replingham Road, we’ll take the opportunity to replace nearby sections of our network which is ageing, to avoid returning to the area and causing future disruption.

We will be on site from today, Monday 27 August to answers any queries. In the meantime, please share this information with anyone who you feel may be impacted by our work.

We understand that roadworks can be frustrating and we will do everything we can to minimise disturbing you. We will remove our lane closures as soon as possible once our repair is complete and the new road surface has set.
