Warnings Over Sewer Repairs
Expect disruption in W3 next week
Thames Water are advising that there will be road closures and diversions next week for emergency sewer repairs in Acton.
The High Street will be closed between Acton Police Station (Steyne Rd) and Gunnersbury Lane with diversions via other local routes clearly signposted. Two-way temporary traffic lights will also be set up on junction of Gunnersbury Lane and the High Street.
The road will be closed at 6am on Sunday and work will be carried out 24 hours a day until the sewer pipe has been repaired and the road resurfaced. The job is expected to take five days.
Micheal Wells from Thames Water has apologised for the anticipated disruption : '' We know it’s frustrating when journeys are disrupted and we’re sorry for any inconvenience the work may cause, but it is a ‘must-do’ job. When a sewer pipe is broken the sewage doesn’t flow through it and instead backs up into the network of pipes, often into properties through toilets and sinks. It’s a truly miserable experience so we have to do all we can to protect our customers from it. We’ll be working day and night to get the job done and the road reopened as quickly as possible.''
