A3 West Hill Open To Traffic

Emergency gas main repairs completed after full road closure

On 8th August an emergency gas main repairs on the busy A3 trunk road at West Hill resulted in the closure of both lanes for seven days

Southern Gas Network engineers were given approval by Transport for London to close the A3 West Hill in both directions from the junction with Upper Richmond Road to the junction with Portinscale Road in order to repair a leaking major gas main that runs underneath the carriageway. The 30” gas main is 3 metres deep and teamsworked extended hours to dig out the main.

Road users continue to face further disruption in the Wandsworth one-way-system as a result of other SGN works - the gas company’s works in Armoury Way are scheduled to last six weeks. Local businesses affected by a loss of trade because of the works can apply for compensation from SGN. For more information visit the publications section of www.sgn.co.uk.
