An Update on the Kilburn Lane Closure, and improved signage Today - 1st August.

This is to repair the collapsed sewer in Kilburn Lane and runs to Approx 18th August.
This from Paul McDonagh at Brent Council today:-

Dear All,
It has been brought to our attention that large volumes of southbound traffic on Kilburn lane were ignoring the advanced warning signage and rather than follow the signed diversion, vehicles were choosing to use Regent Street to gain access to Harrow Road.

Our area engineer, James Collins, met with officers from Westminster and representatives from Thames Water this morning and the following actions have been agreed:-

• Put cones across half way across the road on Chamberlayne Road (southbound only) at the junction with Bannister Road to get traffic to turn left onto Bannister Road away from the area.
• Put a yellow advanced warning sign on Kilburn Lane (junction with Bannister Road) stating that Kilburn Lane is closed and there is no access onto Harrow Road.
• Put cones across half way across the road on Chamberlayne Road (southbound only) at the junction with Kilburn Lane and also a yellow advanced warning sign stating that Kilburn Lane is closed and there is no access onto Harrow Road.
• Put a yellow advanced warning sign on Chamberlayne Road (at “All Souls Avenue&rdquoWinking stating that Kilburn Lane is closed and there is no access onto Harrow Road.
• We have taken the decision to close Regent Street at the junction with Kilburn Lane and allow access via Wellington Road. This is the only way to fully stop vehicles using this street as we have to allow reasonable access into Kilburn Lane for businesses. Regent Street will be made two-way to allow access but with no traffic from Kilburn Lane it will be safe.

Many thanks to the amazing & swift work across the Borough's & work from officer's at Westminster and Brent, to make this closure safe and stop it creating dangerous rat runs.

13Kilburn Lane

We are sorry to be the bearer of bad news AGAIN - but there will be some emergancy repairs on Kilburn Lane for 3 weeks, Starting 31st July until 18th August


This is because of a collapsed sewer. We don't have details of bus diversions yet - we will update you when we get these.

This is the press release from Brent Council:-

Dear Residents,

There is a collapsed sewer outside 13 Kilburn Lane and unfortunately Kilburn Lane will need to be closed from the junction with Harrow Road to the junction of Regent Street to allow Thames Water to complete their urgent and essential repair.

Kilburn Lane will be closed from 31/7/17 to 18/8/17 and traffic will be diverted via:
 
• Northbound - Harrow Road, Elgin Avenue, Maida Vale, Carlton Vale, Kilburn Lane.   
• Southbound - Banister, Kilburn Lane, Carlton Vale, Carlton Hill, Abbey Road, Hall Road, Sutherland Avenue, Harrow Road.


The diversion route will be clearly signed for the duration of this scheme.

This section of Kilburn Lane falls under Westminster Councils control but please be assured that both Brent and Westminster officers will work with Thames Water to reduce the duration of this road closure.

The impact to the road network is expected to be severe, especially in peak times.

I am currently waiting on information regarding bus diversions, when I have this information I will forward it on to you.


Regards,   Paul McDonagh Network Engineer Highways and Infrastructure Brent Council
