More Roadworks @ A12 Redbridge Roundabout - From 3rd October

Not as serious as the last lot. The resurfacing is restricted to between 21:30 and 06:00 hours. Still it is an Olympic route and we mustn’t give the VIPs a bumpy ride.

A12 Redbridge Roundabout and A12 Eastern Avenue Carriageway Renewal Scheme

Transport for London (TfL) is writing to make you aware of upcoming overnight works by Amey to replace the worn-out carriageway surface on the A12 Redbridge Roundabout and parts of the local A12 Eastern Avenue, either side of the Redbridge Roundabout.

The works will begin on Monday 3 October 2011 and will last approximately three weeks. In agreement with the London Borough of Redbridge, the working hours will be 21:30 to 06.00hrs, Monday to Sunday inclusive. There may be times when works have to take place outside of the above hours but these will be kept to within noise level guidelines.

These essential works will bring benefits to road users by renewing the existing road surface to eliminate cracks and pot holes. Upon completion, these works will also reduce the need for future large scale maintenance of this carriageway. We have arranged the work into a suitable amount of phases to reduce the amount of disruption caused and to maintain traffic flow and road capacity as much as possible at all times.

The works will require the closure of sections of the A12 Eastern Avenue, the A406 slip roads to and from the Redbridge Roundabout, and the side road Redbridge Lane East (between Roding Lane South and the Redbridge Roundabout), during some phases of the works. During the works, proposed diversion routes will be clearly signposted locally.

Access for Emergency Services to properties will be maintained. Bus routes using the A12 will be diverted, and advance notices will be displayed on these routes and at local bus stops. We anticipate moderate disruption to vehicular traffic and to mitigate this we will have a number of electronic Variable Messaging Signs (VMS) strategically placed across the network.

TfL is firmly committed to minimising disruption to traffic. We have worked closely with Amey and the London Borough of Redbridge in order to reduce the impact of these works on road users, local people and businesses as far as possible.

I apologise in advance for any inconvenience that these essential works may cause. Should you require further information or an update during the delivery of these works, please contact our Streets Customer Services department on 0845 305 1234 or via our website at

Yours faithfully,

Chris Hall
Consultation and Engagement Manager
