Vaughan Way Part Closure

IMG_1627As part of works to integrate the new London Dock development into the surrounding area, it was decided that part of Vaughan Way would be raised. Having discussed this with the London Dock guys, I understand the idea was better to connect the new public square to the public spaces of Thomas More Square, bringing some level of continuity for pedestrians. I hope that it will also create a greater sense of arrival for people turning off the Highway and entering Wapping, helping to slow local traffic in the process.

Anyway, the works for this will be beginning on 8 August but I am afraid this will involve some disruption for local residents for around three weeks. Yesterday I received info about the precise arrangements for traffic during this period and I paste below all the details.

Dear Sir or Madam,

Re: Speed table and Carriageway Resurfacing Works in Vaughan Way

The Council intends to construct a raised speed table and resurface the carriageway in Vaughan Way (Outside St George Development) between The Highway and Asher Way.

The works are programmed to start on site on Monday 8 August 2016 and should take 3 weeks to complete.

During the road works carriageway width will be reduced and only single file traffic will be allowed within works area. We are intending to maintain access at all times for traffic entering into Vaughan Way from The Highway and East Smithfield (A1203); however the traffic leaving the Wapping area will have to use alternative routes e.g. Wapping Lane or Thomas More Street to join (A1203).

In order to carry out the road works as safely and quickly as possible, it will be necessary to reduce the carriageway width and suspend on-street parking. The diversion routes will be signed.

I apologise in advance for any inconvenience the works may cause you. If you have any questions or concerns with regards to the works, please do not hesitate to contact me on the above phone number or e-mail address, especially if you need urgent access during the works.

Yours faithfully,

Mike Arnold
