Wapping Road Improvements

P1070001Given that there’s still a big dip in the road on Wapping Wall, I asked for an update on carriageway improvements to restore the setts along the Wall, High Street and St Katharine’s Way. I received the reply below. The issue with Wapping Wall seems to be the collapse of a BT inspection chamber, due to be repaired in the next couple of weeks.

Dear Councillor Dockerill

Subject: Wapping Wall Carriageway Reinstatement Works.

I refer to your enquiry regarding the Wapping High Street and Wapping Wall carriageway reinstatement works.

The Council has carried out significant repair works on the entire length of the carriageway during last couple of years from Wapping Wall, Wapping High Street and on to St Katharine’s Way. The works included renewal of the surface with matching existing setts.

These carriageway repair works are still ongoing in Wapping Wall and the section outside 78-80 Wapping Wall adjacent to bus stop has been put on hold due to a collapsed British Telecom (BT) inspection chamber. BT has been notified of their defective chamber and it is on their work schedule to commence within the next couple of weeks. Upon completion of works by BT we will resume with sett reinstatement along Wapping Wall.

Kind regards

Team Leader Better Streets
