Chancellor's Drive roadworks

Starting Monday 21 October a programme of essential infrastructure works will begin on Chancellor's Drive.

This will involve significant trenching works along Chancellor's Drive which will last until approximately late January 2020.

The width of the multi-service trenching, which involves the installation of new drainage systems and additional connections to heating and electricity services, will mean the closure of a single carriageway on Chancellor's Drive.

To ensure minimal disruption, works will be undertaken in a phased approach to keep Chancellor's Drive open.

Traffic management will be in place to control vehicle movements along Chancellor's Drive.

This work will be carried out by contractor RG Carter on behalf of the Estates and Facilities Division.

Trenching Phase 1 (commencing Monday 28 October)

This will involve trenching up one of the carriageways on Chancellor's Drive to connect drainage services once the contractor compound are site preparations are in place.

Trenching will begin at the Estates Loading bay toward the zebra crossing by the Security Lodge.

This phase involves approximately 6 weeks' work.

Traffic management will be in place to control vehicles movements along Chancellor's Drive.

Pedestrian access will be maintained.

National Express bus services will continue to pick up on Chancellor's Drive and First Bus services will continue.

Trenching Phase 2 (date TBC following completion of Phase 1)

This will involve trenching further up Chancellor's Drive to enable installation of heating mains and data ducts.

This phase is approximately 8 weeks' work but subject to change.

Traffic management will be in place to control vehicle movements along Chancellor's Drive.

Pedestrian access will be maintained.
