Emergency Gas Works
Unfortunately, our village will face some severe congestion over the coming weeks due to emergency gas works.
Below is an extract from a letter from the contractor SGN that we have been asked to share with our residents.
If anyone has any queries relating to the works you can contact Paige Roberts of SGN on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01293818251.
Essential gas network repairs – Wimbledon Park Road and Replingham Road, Wimbledon
We are writing to make you aware of our urgent repairs to our gas network in Wimbledon Park Road area of Wimbledon. This essential work will ensure a continued safe and reliable gas supply to Wimbledon for many years to come.
In close consultation with Wandsworth Council we will carry out our repair from Tuesday 28 August and expect our upgrades to last approximately six weeks.
To keep motorists and our engineers safe around our work area, we will need to close Replingham Road between Wimbledon Park Road and Elsenham Street. Traffic leaving Elsenham Street will only be able to turn right on Replingham Road and a signed diversion via Merton Road and Granville Road will be in place for motorists.
Wimbledon Park Road is also closed to southbound traffic at Replingham Road. We’ve installed temporary three-way traffic lights in Wimbledon Park Road at this junction to maintain traffic flow.
We will also need to suspend the central crossing and the bus stop outside 259 Wimbledon Park Road, commuters will be diverted to the nearest alternative.
We’ve agreed with the local council that while we are repairing our gas main in Replingham Road, we’ll take the opportunity to replace nearby sections of our network which is ageing, to avoid returning to the area and causing future disruption.
We will be on site from Monday 27 August to answers any queries. In the meantime, please share this information with anyone who you feel may be impacted by our work.
We understand that roadworks can be frustrating, and we will do everything we can to minimise disturbing you. We will remove our lane closures as soon as possible once our repair is complete and the new road surface has set.
If you have any further questions, please let me know.

Nominations for new committee members should be received by 9th October 2018 and please feel free to nominate by emailing our secretary Hilary Taylor at Hilaryatsouthfields@gmail.com
During the evening we will host an open discussion forum which will provide local residents an opportunity to meet our councillors and committee members informally and put any questions you may have to them. We have invited our local councillors as well as our local MP Justine Greening.
This is a great opportunity to meet other residents within the Triangle and to find out more about your local residents association, we really hope that you can attend and we look forward to welcoming you.
