Release Date: 24 October 2017

Richmond Council is advising residents of planned resurfacing works in Hampton Court Road during November.

This is a continuation of resurfacing work which has taken place over the last twelve months.

The work, part of the Council’s £4 million planned highway maintenance programme, will mean road closures between Hampton Court Bridge and Tagg’s Island from 8pm to 5am between the 5th and 10th November and between the 12th and 15th November.

The diversion route will be clearly sign posted with traffic control gatemen at closure points to offer assistance, directions and advice.

Cllr Peter Buckwell, Cabinet member for Highways and Street Scene said:

“The road will be closed between Hampton Court Bridge Roundabout and Church Street to through traffic with the exception of emergency response vehicles, access only will be maintained for residential traffic.

“We understand the frustration of residents as yet again this important road is closed for roadworks. They are, however, necessary due to resurfacing work taking place during this time. We apologise for any inconvenience this causes.”
