We're continuing to carry out essential network upgrades in the Caillard Road area to ensure West Byfleet properties receive a safe and reliable supply of gas for many years to come.
Our engineers have been working in Caillard Road and Dawson Road since the end of April. Most of this work has been carried out using "give and take" traffic management so motorists can safely pass our site.
However, we're approaching the next phases of our project which require additional traffic management measures to ensure everyone's safety.
From Monday 25 July, and for approximately 12 weeks, our engineers will be working to upgrade our network in Oyster Lane.
During this time, we need to close Oyster Lane between property number 83 and High Road. A signed diversion will be in place for affected through traffic. However, access will be maintained for residents and businesses. All businesses will remain open as usual throughout our closure of Oyster Lane.
In addition, we need to install temporary traffic lights near to its junction with Chertsey Road for approximately five weeks.
Temporary traffic lights will be installed in Chertsey Road near to its junction with Oyster Lane from Monday 15 August.
These lights will be positioned here for two weeks while we carry out our work in Chertsey Road.
We have additional work to carry out in Petersham Avenue, York Road, Royston Avenue, High Road, Queens Avenue, Lake Close and Ferney Road before February 2023. Upgrade work in these roads is expected to be carried out safely using "give and take" traffic management.
All our work has been agreed following close consultation with Surrey County Council.
We understand people can get frustrated by roadworks. However, the new plastic pipe has a minimum lifespan of 80 years. This means that when the work is complete, West Byfleet residents and businesses will continue to enjoy the benefits of a safe and reliable gas supply for many years to come.
