Westminster City Council has commissioned its service provider, FM Conway Limited, to resurface the Strand (between Savoy Street and Charing Cross Station) and Adam Street Carriageways. This work will be undertaken in late March (starting 28th March) and finishing in early April (ends 7th April); formal notification of the resurfacing programme of works will be distributed in mid-March to affected businesses and residents.
The resurfacing will be undertaken in seven (No.7) separate phases, three eastbound (on 28th, 29th and 30th March), three westbound (on 4th, 5th and 6th April) and Adam Street; which will be resurfaced on Sunday 3rd April. When resurfacing the eastbound carriageway, the westbound carriageway will remain open to traffic; and vice versa.
The FM Conway team will be working extended hours to complete sections in one day; with works expected to continue into the late evening. During each phase there will be no vehicle access or egress allowed within area being resurfaced; these are between:
Eastbound Phases –
1. Duncannon Street to Agar Street on Monday 28th March
2. Agar Street to Lumley Court on Tuesday 29th March; and,
3. Lumley Court to Burleigh Street (includes the junction mouth) on Wednesday 30th March
* Thursday 31st March is a reserve day should there be bad weather or should unknown issues arise.
4. Adam Street will be resurfaced overnight between 18:00pm and 05:00am on Sunday 3rd April.
Westbound Phases –
5. Savoy Street (includes mouth of junction) to Adam Street on Monday 4th April
6. Adam Street to just beyond George Court on Tuesday 5th April; and,
7. George Court to Trafalgar Square on Wednesday 6th April; this includes resurfacing in front of Charing Cross Station where only emergency vehicle access and egress under “blue lights” will be available during the day.
Thursday 7th April is also a reserve day.
During the directional closures of the carriageway TfL Surface Network Buses will be on diversion.
Pedestrian access to businesses will not be affected by the resurfacing; however, there will be closures of pedestrian crossings during each phase and alternative, safe crossing points will be available.
Once the resurfacing is completed, we will then strengthen all drain and utility covers in both carriageways; this will be done during the working day under localised lane closures (not full closure of the carriageway).
Works will be noisy at times for which FM Conway do apologise in advance.
In the meantime, some enabling works started on 25th February. This is to realign kerb stones and small areas of paving that have been damaged by vehicles. Nearby businesses have been notified of these works.
