Work will shortly be starting to resurface the pavements along Norwood Road, as the first phase of Streetworks, the community led project to improve West Norwood and Tulse Hill. This includes both sides of Norwood Road between Leigham Vale and Elmcourt Road. It will start in early August and will be carried out in phases as follows:
• 1st Phase: Norwood Road (east side only) opposite Leigham Vale to Avenue Park Road – approximately one week
• 2nd Phase: Norwood Road (east side only) between Avenue Park Road and Elmcourt Road – approximately three to four weeks
• 3rd Phase: Norwood Road (west side only) between Leigham Vale and opposite Elmcourt Road – approximately five weeks
In the letter sent to residents /businesses Lambeth states;
We are aware that many of you live or work near the affected roads and we will do our best to minimise disruption. We will have signs to inform the public that businesses are open as usual and to ensure that there will always be access to premises while improvement works are progressing. There are no scheduled road closures as part of the work however the parking bays outside Elmcourt Pharmacy will be suspended during the works on the west side of Norwood Road (the last phase of works).
We appreciate that these improvement works will cause some short term disruption however we will ensure that access and servicing needs are catered for. Should you have any queries regarding these works please contact Debbie Parker on DParker@lambeth.gov.uk or contact one of your local councillors
There are other changes proposed to improve West Norwood as part of Streetworks – you can see the plans at a public exhibition this Wednesday between 6.30-8pm at the Old Library, Knights Hill
