Update on TfL and Cadent roadworks in Dalston
The final phase of Transport for London work to improve traffic signals at Dalston Junction has started this week, with some further disruption in the area expected.
The works were originally planned to be delivered last year, but were disrupted by both Covid-19 and the financial challenges faced by TfL. Working with TfL to ensure that works at the junction are completed and disruption minimised remains the Council’s priority.
When complete the junction will be safer for pedestrians and cyclists with wider pavements which will also support better social distancing.
Temporary signals have been in place at the junction since the start of the year, but these are set to switch to slower phases between 27 January and 5 February as operatives work in the road, which is likely to cause some additional disruption. (UPDATE: this disruptive phase has been completed earlier than scheduled and will end at 2.30pm on 2 February).
Following requests from the Council to start weekend and night time working, TfL expect work to be completed earlier than scheduled.
Cadent Gas is 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:
- January - March - Dalston Lane is subject to temporary signals between Navarino Road and Greenwood Road - delays are expected during these works.
- January - March - Sandringham Road will be closed at its junction with Amhurst Road and parts of Greenwood Road north of Graham Road will be closed
- January - March - the Navarino Road junction with Dalston Lane will be closed
- February - 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.
We know these roadworks have sadly caused significant disruption for residents in the Dalston area, which is why we’ve been working closely with Transport for London to ensure they are completed as quickly as possible. I’m glad to say that we’re now reaching the final phase, but unfortunately this will sadly mean some additional disruption between 27 January and 5 February before we finally see the much safer junction complete.
