Planned Roadworks – Northolt Road

News just in that there are some major roadworks starting on the Northolt Road at it’s junction with Grange Road (outside the Police Station, more or less) at 09.30 on Tuesday 8th February and lasting until midday on Saturday 12th February.

This work is due to contractors laying a new cable on behalf of BSkyB.  The contractors will be working in “thirds” (not, I feel, rhyming slang for anything), so that there should, in theory, be two way traffic working at all times in both directions.  However, with the additional works vehicles, onlookers, disruption, etc, it’s worth avoiding the area if possible, especially at rush hour.

Incidentally, just behind the Police Station is BT’s South Harrow Telephone Exchange.  This work may be part of BT’s “Fibre to the Cabinet” project rollout, which is scheduled to launch in March 2011 for South Harrow, and will offer broadband speeds of up to 40Mbit.
