A23 Brixton Road - Essential carriageway resurfacing works

Ringway Jacobs, on behalf of Transport for London (TfL), has been appointed to carry out essential carriageway resurfacing works on the A23 Brixton Road , between A203 Stockwell Road and A202 Camberwell New Road . These works will bring benefits to road users by renewing the existing road surface to eliminate cracks and pot holes. Upon completion, these works will also reduce the need for large scale maintenance of the carriageway for many years to come.


The works will be carried out from Monday 15 August to Saturday 27 August 2011 between 20:00 and 06:00hrs. During the works, A23 Brixton Road between A203 Stockwell Road and A202 Camberwell New Road will be closed to northbound traffic, however southbound traffic will be maintained. Northbound traffic will be diverted via A203 Stockwell Road and A3 Clapham Road .


TfL is firmly committed to minimising disruption to traffic; resurfacing the road overnight provides us with the best chance to complete these works as quickly as possible with as little disruption as possible. During the works, proposed diversion routes will be indicated via traffic signs.


Also note that the noisiest activities, such as breaking out and planing off the existing carriageway surface, will be carried out in the initial part of each night and aim to stop by 24:00hrs; the remaining works, such as laying and compacting the new surface and the associated road markings, will continue till 06:00hrs.


All stakeholders, including the London Borough of Lambeth, have been consulted and support our coordinated approach. In order to carry out these works we will require full access of the carriageway and therefore all parking will be suspended during the works. Your patience and cooperation would be greatly appreciated.

We anticipate moderate disruption to vehicular traffic and to mitigate this, we will have electronic Variable Messaging Signs (VMS) in the area to pre-warn drivers of these works.
