Plot R4 / Plot R5 / York Way

Goods Way / York Way
Amend traffic lights when junction is re-configured as part of the permanent development of the petrol station site. Approximate implementation in 2018/2019.
Goods Way
Goods Way northern footpath open. Between Pancras Road and King's Boulevard the southern footpath and part of the carriageway will be closed for construction from June 2012 to 2017 and pedestrians will be diverted on to the northern footpath.
Boulevard / Goods Way / Regent’s Canal Bridge
As part of utility installation works we will be excavating a pit on Goods Way. The works will be carried out across the following weekends between 08.00 and 17.00 on both days: Saturday 4th March and Sunday 5th March 2017 Saturday 11th March and Sunday 12th March 2017 Saturday 18th March and Sunday 19th March 2017 (if required) During these weekends only, the zebra crossing will be temporarily relocated slightly further along Goods Way (Eastbound towards York Way). Pedestrian and vehicle access will be managed. From Saturday 25th March 2017 until the end of April 2017 the crossing will remain in the temporary location whilst works continue.
Beaconsfield Street - Closure
Beaconsfield Street has been closed between Handyside Street and Rubicon Court to facilitate the construction of Building R7.
Towpath Closure - top of Canal Steps to Gasholder 8
Works are underway on the new Somers Town Bridge which will span Regent's Canal by the Western Coal Drops to Camley Street Natural Park. The bridge is set to open in Summer 2017. To facilitate these works we will be closing the towpath from the top of the Canal Steps along to Gasholder 8 for a period of three weeks (Monday 27th March 2017 to Friday 14th April 2017 Good Friday).
Temporary Road Closure for Tower Crane at R1
As part of ongoing construction work we will be removing a Tower Crane and erecting another Tower Crane on the R1 site. Due to the nature of the very large vehicles involved, we will be working across a weekend and temporarily closing a section of Handyside Street. Weekend works to dismantle Tower Crane 1 will take place between 07.00 – 18.00 on Saturday 25th March and Sunday 26th March between between 08.00 to 18.00. From Monday 27th March to Thursday 30th March we will be erecting Tower Crane 2 between 08.00 – 18.00 each day. For safety purposes, we will be implementing a road closure along Handyside Street from the UAL Platform Theatre to the Stable Street turning. Pedestrian access will be maintained at all times and traffic marshals will be in place to minimise disruption. A one way system (in reverse to the current one) will be operated from Canal Reach, down Stable Street to Goods Way for all traffic during this period. In case of bad weather works may need to continue across the following weekend.
Utility Excavation Works
From the end of March 2017, we will be excavating three additional pits to rectify broken ducts as part wide infrastructure installation works. There are two pits on Handyside Street and one on Stable Street. We aim for the pits to be closed by mid-April 2017 to minimise the disruption.
