Update on TfL roadworks at Dalston Junction
Transport for London work to improve traffic signals at Dalston Junction has now paused for Christmas, and will restart on 4 January.
During this time, temporary signals will operate using quicker timings as workers will not be working in the road, which will reduce congestion.
The Council is working closely with Transport for London to mitigate congestion caused by the roadworks, with TfL’s contractor agreeing to weekend working to reduce disruption.
Thames Water are also working to repair a burst water main at the Graham Road/Dalston Lane junction, which is also contributing to congestion in the area. This is expected to be repaired by Monday 21 December.
From 4 January, work on the traffic signals at Dalston Junction will resume, with no additional disruption expected until 18 January, when TfL’s contractor will again begin work in the road and temporary traffic light timings will use slower phasing to keep workers safe.
There is therefore expected to be additional congestion between 18 Jan and 15 February, before quicker signal timings are introduced again.
Work is expected to be completed sooner than originally anticipated, after the Council granted permission for nighttime and weekend working in the new year.
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.
This work to improve traffic signals at Dalston Junction is long overdue and we’re working closely with Transport for London to mitigate the congestion the work is causing, including by asking them to introduce nighttime and weekend working to bring forward the completion date. We will provide a further update on how work is progressing in the new year.
