Further update on Staples Corner

Further to my previous update on poanned works around the Staples Corner roundabout, please see an update from TfL with details of the road closure plan:

Dear Andrew,

 

I am writing to let you know that we are planning to carry out essential maintenance works to the A406 Staples Corner flyover from Monday 28 August to Wednesday 20 September 2017.

 

We will need to close the A406 fully at Staples Corner at times; there are details in the table below. Local access will be maintained and all businesses in the area can remain open as usual. Access will be maintained via the slip roads around Staples Corner. We will be making every effort to encourage drivers from further afield to avoid using the flyover during the works via a significant communications campaign and advanced signage.

 

Roads will be extremely busy and significant delays are expected in the area. We apologise in advance for the inconvenience caused by the works.

 

The works are planned in phases to minimise disruption.

  • The flyover will be closed to eastbound traffic
19 Sept 22:00 – 05:00 the following morning

During the closures at Staples Corner, all main approach roads and surrounding local roads will be extremely busy and significant delays are expected.

 

We are advising drivers to plan ahead, and leave more time for their journeys, or use alternative routes or modes of travel where possible.

 

Please note, while every effort will be made to complete the works as planned, poor weather conditions may result in the works and associated road closures being rescheduled at short notice. Live road travel information is available from www.tfl.gov.uk/trafficnews and @TfLTrafficNews on Twitter.

 

Unfortunately, the nature of the works means that some noise will be unavoidable. We are planning to complete the noisiest works by midnight at the latest each night.

 

Buses

Route 32 will be on diversion via the A5 and will not serve Staples Corner during the full closures on 1-4 September, 8-11 September, and 17 September.

 

Routes 32, 112, 142, 182, 232, 266, and N16 will also experience delays, and may terminate early.

 

Routes 112, 142, 182 and 266 (which terminate at Brent Cross Shopping Centre) may have reduced services.

 

More information will be posted at affected stops and you can visit www.tfl.gov.uk/bus/status or follow @TfLBusAlerts on Twitter for live service updates.

 

Freight

If businesses make or receive deliveries in north London they are advised to talk to their customers and suppliers now, to consider if there are changes they need to make to their deliveries or collections, such as retiming to outside of the busiest times. Please visit www.tfl.gov.uk/freight for more information.

 

The Staples Corner flyover maintenance forms part of our investment in London’s roads. Please visit tfl.gov.uk/northwest-london-major-roadworks for more information, including a map and travel advice.
