Notification of major gas works: Melrose Avenue, Wimbledon Park

I have been sent the following information about gas works on Melrose Avenue, starting today, 13th May, and lasting for three weeks.


We are writing to make you aware of a forthcoming reinforcement to our gas network on Melrose Avenue in Wimbledon Park, to ensure a safe and reliable gas supply. Our contractor Forefront Utilities will undertake this work on our behalf.

In consultation with London Borough of Merton, our project will start on Monday 13 May and will last approximately three weeks.

Our engineers will be working in Melrose Avenue at its junction with Revelstoke Road, to ensure everyone’s safety we will need to close the road and suspend some parking bays while we carry out our work. Signed diversions will be in place for motorist and cyclist via Braemar Avenue.

At times we will need to access our main in the footpath, due to the location and for everyone's continued safety, we will need to close the right-side footway and divert pedestrians to the footway on the opposite side of the road.
