Charlie Brown’s Roundabout – Work Starts Monday 9th July

The long-awaited improvements to Charlie Brown’s roundabout are imminent. Work on resurfacing the road and footways starts next Monday 9th July with the whole scheme planned to take about 4 months, being implemented in phases. There will be some disruption so please take note of the schedule. Some of it will be during the quieter school summer holidays which is a bonus.

The initial works will take place overnight from 21:00 to 05:00 on Monday to Friday between 9 and 23 July 2018 to minimise traffic disruption. After that, works will be carried out during the daytime, between 09:00 and 21:00 during the traditionally quieter traffic periods over the school summer holidays, then 10:00 – 16:00 during term time. These work times have been agreed with the London Borough of Redbridge and Highways England.

During the works there will be some temporary changes to the road network, buses and some footway and pedestrian crossings, as set out below.
