Transport for London has confirmed that any drain repairs in London which would affect the flow of traffic while the Olympic Games are going on in the capital. This means that the roadworks in Bexleyheath, Southeast London to repair a collapsed sewer will continue until the end of this month and then begin again in September.
The Crook Log area of Bexleyheath has been affected by the sewerage issues for a number of months now as tankers have had to remove the wastewater from the site. However, work is now set to begin on repairing the sewer pipe which lies below the carriageway.
After the planned repairs have been carried out, they will put the necessary road resurfacing work on hold until September 10. This is expected to take around five weeks and will be carried out during the evenings.
Traffic in this part of Bexleyheath has been disrupted for some time now as a number of gas mains have also needed attention.
While the current sewer repair job is being undertaken by engineers, two-way traffic lights will be in place near to Dallin Road.
