Alderton Hill Closure


29 July 2018

Road ClosedAlderton Hill will be closed from the Roding Road to the mini-roundabout by Loughton station for around 5 weeks from end-July! This will cause traffic chaos. The road is being closed this summer – and in summer 2019 – to replace the road bridge across the brook.
 
This year all the “services” – gas pipes, electricity wires, water mains etc – will be traced, dug up, and moved to a new separate bridge across the brook. Until all the “services” are located and examined, it’s not possible to tell how much work will be needed, or how long it will take.

Next year the current bridge, which is starting to fail, will be taken up and a new one installed to a higher specification.

167 bus. TfL originally planned to turn the service round at Buckhurst Hill. Prompt action by LRA Cllr Chris Pond, supported by Cllrs Valerie Metcalfe and Stephen Murray, got this changed to a diversion along Brook Road and Brooklyn Avenue. We have asked for the High Road stops marked Forest Road to be used.
