- Engineers to carry out essential work at the entrance to Richmond Park
- Work expected to be completed later this week
- Richmond Park will remain open to public as usual
Cadent engineers are carrying out essential work to the local gas mains network around the entrance to popular London visitor attraction Richmond Park.
The work must be done to help ensure the local gas network continues to operate safely and reliably.
Engineers are working in Queens Road opposite Star and Garter House in Queens Road and near the Richmond Gate entrance to Richmond Park. As part of the work some traffic management (signage and temporary traffic lights) will need to be put up in the vicinity, including some temporary signage around the Richmond Gate entrance to the Park.
The work has been planned in close discussion with the local authorities and Cadent has also been in discussion with The Royal Parks to secure agreement for the work to be done.
Cadent is using minimum dig ‘keyhole for roads’ technology to carry out its work which will help ensure the work is carried out as quickly as possible and with minimal disruption.
Richmond Park and local shops and businesses will remain open to the public as usual throughout the work and local gas supplies should not be interrupted.
The work will be completed as soon as possible and all being well it should be completed later this week.
