TfL resume traffic light roadworks at Dalston Junction
Transport for London work to modernise traffic lights at the A10 junction with Dalston Lane and Balls Pond Road has resumed this week, and is expected to last until 7 March.
Work stopped at the site, which has had temporary traffic lights for much of this year, after the start of the pandemic and has been contributing to delays in the area.
While there could be some additional delays until work is completed, the modernised traffic lights are expected to improve traffic flows.
Cadent Gas are also currently carrying out work to replace a gas main between Rectory Road and London Fields Lido. This is set to be carried out in phases, with temporary traffic lights and road closures in place to support the work:
- December 2020 - Roadworks and temporary traffic lights in place on Rectory Road and Amhurst Road
- January - March 2021 - Sandringham Road will be closed at its junction with Amhurst Road and parts of Greenwood Road north of Graham Road will be closed
- February - March 2021 - Greenwood Road south of Wilton Way will be closed.
All residents and businesses will continue to be able to access properties at all times during the work. Signed diversion routes will be in place for drivers.
Cadent Gas is writing to residents and businesses in the area this month.
The improvements to traffic lights at Dalston Junction are very important and long-overdue. The temporary signals have been a big contributor to delays in the area and, while this work will also cause disruption, it’s good that the end of work is now in sight.
We recognise that the signalling works at Dalston Junction appear to have caused extensive congestion in the immediate area within the first 24 hours of starting and I have raised concerns about this with Transport for London with a view to minimising further significant disruption. We will continue to provide updates to residents on our work with TfL to resolve these issues.
It should also be noted that important work to replace gas mains in the borough is set to be taking place over the coming months. While there will be some disruption, we’re working closely with Cadent Gas to make sure this is minimised.
