I’ve just been informed by Steve O’Connell, our local Greater London Assembly member, that there will be emergency utility works on the A232 Croydon Road, commencing on 4th January for about 6 weeks. This is to repair an Extra High Voltage cable located beneath Croydon Road at the junction with Cedars Road.

Working hours will be 8am-8pm Monday to Friday with weekend working as required. The first few days of work will be noisy. Traffic Management utilising two way temporary traffic signals will be set up.

We all know how busy this road can be so the early warning is welcome. No doubt it’ll affect the Beddington Lane junction at peak times so it might be advisable to stay clear as much as possible.
