Just thought I’d warn everybody. The works down at Gants Hill are coming to an end, but not without a sting in the tail. The final stage is to resurface the roadways and it comes in 4 two-week phases starting on July 12th. That’s eight weeks, or two months which includes the Redbridge Sky Ride on August 15th. As the report says “The necessary closures will be disruptive for residents, commuters, bus passengers and local businesses.”
The plan is to keep the main east-west traffic open with contraflows but north south traffic will not get through this way. North south Buses are to be re-routed via Tanners Lane, Horns Road and Ley Street. Please note that the phases in that report are in the wrong order, they should be 1, 4, 3, 2.
It’s gotta be done, I'm afraid. But fortunately we do have other options for tube stations which are now all in Zone 4. Since December I’ve been going in to the City via Fairlop and coming home via South Woodford.
