Beaconsfield Street - Closure
Beaconsfield Street has been closed between Handyside Street and Rubicon Court to facilitate the construction of Building R7.
Plot R4 / Plot R5 / York Way
Not a signalled junction. Currently in operation.
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.
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 early July 2017. To facilitate these works we will be closing the towpath from the top of the Canal Steps along to Gasholder 8 from Monday 12 June to Saturday 17 June. A diversion is in place with further details available in the attached notice.
Temporary closure of Eastern track on Lewis Cubitt Park
The footpath to the eastern side of Lewis Cubitt Park will be closed from 18th August until later this year. The closure is necessary in order for us to undertake landscaping and footpath construction works in preparation for the opening of Fenman House. Lewis Cubitt Park will remain open during this time as will the footpath to the western side. During this time, both pedestrians and cyclists will need to use the recently opened Canal Reach or York Way as alternative north-south routes.
Temporary Closure of Footpath
Due to public realm works, the footpath along the southern end of the Plimsoll Building will be closed from Monday 12 June for a period of 16 weeks. A diversion will be in place during this time.
Hoarding Move
Please be advised that from Monday 24th July until early August, construction teams will begin works to the Northern end of King’s Boulevard (at Goods Way); moving the existing hoarding line towards the kerb. The hoarding line move is to allow enabling works (temporary sheet piling and excavations) in order to begin the remediation of the remaining part of the site. Pedestrian and cycle access will be maintained throughout this time. We will update with more details over the next few weeks on the next stages of the programme.
