Repairing the road outside Aldi in Coulsdon Town
17/08/2016 12:03:00......Posted by Mario Creatura
It's great to have just learned that Croydon’s Highways team will shortly be commencing carriageway repairs on the Brighton Road Roundabout opposite Aldi.
We've been pushing for this to happen for some time, so it's reassuring to hear this work is scheduled to commence on 22nd August. Due to the locations and nature of these works it is inevitable that some disruption will occur, these works are being scheduled to be carried out, between 07:00-19:00.
The below letter will be distributed to local residents and businesses in the vicinity with a letter drop notification by 18 August 2016:
I am writing to inform you that Kier Highways, on behalf of Croydon Council, will shortly be commencing repairs at the location/s and date/s below:
Date: Commencing 22nd August 2016
Location: Brighton Road
These essential works are expected to take 5 weeks to complete, however every effort will be made to complete the works as soon as possible.
The repair works will take place between Brighton Road Roundabout opposite Aldi and its Junction with Chipstead Valley Road. Due to the nature of these works it is inevitable that some disruption will occur and access to Brighton Roadwill be severely impacted by the use of multi way temporary traffic signals. This traffic management will be monitored and amended to include a one way system in Chipstead Valley Road if the lights are too impactive. For this reason it is recommended that where possible you use alternative routes, or allow extra time to complete your journey.
Please be assured that all businesses will be open as usual during these works.
Advance driver / resident information boards will be in place before the works commence, advising of the precise dates and times of the repair works.
Please however note that unforeseen circumstances (e.g. inclement weather conditions) may necessitate a change to the scheduled dates and information on road signs will be changed accordingly. Please check the road signs regularly for any updates.
To enable the Contractor to undertake the works, on-street parking will be suspendedeach day. We also kindly ask that with forward planning vehicular access to and from properties adjacent to the road are reduced to a minimum during the works hours. Pedestrian access will not be affected.
The on-street parking suspensions that will be in place within the works area are all day commencing 22nd August 2016 for approximately 5 weeks. Throughout the works every effort will be made to minimise the number of on-street parking areas affected by the works.
Please note that penalty charge notices (PCN’s) will be applied to vehicles parked within the suspended areas during the works hours and/or vehicles relocated.
Due to the above we would urge all residents to ensure that their vehicles are moved from the suspended areas in order to avoid any delays to the works as well as incurring any charges.
If your vehicle is relocated please contact TRACE on 0207 747 4747, who will provide you with an exact location of your vehicle.
We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause residents; however we want to ensure that all works carried out on the Croydon network are to the highest standards to ensure value for our residents.
Beware Bogus Callers
Croydon Council does not permit its employees or contractors to undertake work on private property during the course of any scheme. If anyone offers such work they will not be a council approved contractor and should be treated with caution. Any scheme undertaken by a council approved contractor does not require cash payments.
Cold calling doorstep traders offering to carry out home maintenance work such as driveway repairs and roofing are a problem in Croydon. These traders can be very persuasive and can intimidate you into agreeing to have work undertaken. The advice from Croydon Trading Standards Service is to say “NO” to all cold calling traders – Every Time. If they will not leave or you get into difficulties, then call Croydon Trading Standards on
