The works being undertaken on Manor Road are part of the A310 Strawberry Vale pedestrian and cycling improvements previously consulted on in 2021. Read more information about the overall scheme

The minor works relating to this scheme have already been completed and we are now in a position to undertake the main element of the construction work.

Timescales

These works will start in the week beginning 23 January 2023 and remain on site until the end of June 2023.

We will make every effort to complete the work as planned and keep inconvenience to an absolute minimum. However, at times it is possible that works can get delayed due to unforeseen circumstances, and so we would ask for your cooperation and understanding.

The works are starting in January rather than during the school holidays as originally intended due to the works programme being much longer than the school holiday. We calculated that it would have the least impact on traffic in the area after the Christmas period.

Construction

The works will have three separate phases. View the construction phase plan (pdf, 460 KB).

Phase 1

The western side of Manor Road (between Ferry Road and Twickenham Road) will be closed while works are undertaken on the footway and carriageway.

Northbound traffic (heading to Twickenham) will still have access through Manor Road however the road will be closed to southbound traffic (leaving Twickenham). General southbound traffic will be diverted along Waldegrave Road.

Phase 2

The eastern side of Manor Road (between Ferry Road and Twickenham Road) will be closed while the footway and carriageway works are completed.

As in phase 1, northbound traffic will continue to have access through Manor Road, while southbound traffic is diverted through Waldegrave Road.

Phase 3

We will be able to undertake these works without requiring any lane closures, so access through Manor Road will be restored in both directions. 

Diversion details

We have reviewed all the possible methods for implementing this work and a one-way closure allows for the scheme to be delivered in the shortest amount of time and has the least impact on traffic.

The one-way closure/diversion route will be in operation 24/7 for the first two phases of the project.

Bus routes

We understand that the works will have an impact on the southbound bus service and so to minimise this the bus will follow a different diversion route.

The only bus route that will be affected is the R68. The northbound route for this service will be unaffected, whereas the southbound route will be diverted through Waldegrave Park.

See a map showing the bus stops affected by these works (pdf, 346 KB).

Cyclists

While the diversion is in place cyclists will be able to travel northbound with traffic. However, cyclists travelling southbound will be required to either follow the diversion route or dismount to use the footway.

Impact on adjacent roads

This method of traffic management has been carefully chosen to have the least impact on traffic and allow the construction works to be completed as quickly and efficiently as possible. 

We have liaised with TfL's traffic signal team who believe that the current layout will accommodate any additional traffic. However, the traffic signals will be monitored throughout the works and adjustments made should that prove necessary.
