Brixton Hill road resurfacing to start in December

roadrepairsIn June this year, Cllr Martin Tiedemann approached Transport for London and our local Assembly Member, Val Shawcross, about the state of the surface of Brixton Hill. Major cracks and potholes had appeared that are particularly dangerous for cyclists. As a ‘red route’ Brixton Hill is the responsibility of Transport for London and the Mayor, and not Lambeth Council.

Cllr Tiedemann was pleased to receive a response from TfL following his representations confirming that Brixton Hill was to be resurfaced this year. They have now confirmed arrangements for this work.

The works will take place overnight between 1st and 19th December starting at 9pm and finishing at 6am, weather permitting. The loudest element of the work, removing the existing surface, will take place by midnight so as to minimise noise in the early hours for residents. The work will take place in a series of phases:

  • Sunday 1 December through to Monday 2 December 2013
    This will comprise of re-surfacing Brixton Hill from Baytree Road to St Mathews Road northbound

    This will comprise of re-surfacing Brixton Hill from Baytree Road to St Mathews Road southbound

Councillor Martin Tiedemann said, “It is good news for local cyclists and residents that Brixton Hill is being resurfaced following my request. Obviously there will be some disruption for traffic and for residents during the three-week period of works, including the suspension of parking on those days and the temporary closure of some pedestrian crossings.

“Overall though we believe this is very welcome and should minimise future emergency works and create a better environment for Brixton Hill. This complements Lambeth Council’s largest ever investment in resurfacing our streets and pavements this year.”
