Highways improvement works are being carried out by Conway Aecom at the Cricklewood Lane / A5 Cricklewood Broadway / Chichele Road junction. These works have been agreed as part of the planning permission for the Brent Cross Cricklewood regeneration programme.
The main purpose of the improvements works is to deliver additional capacity for vehicles travelling through the junction, particularly from Cricklewood Lane to the east. The improvements include signal modernisation, footway improvements and new controlled pedestrian crossing facilities.
Works commenced: Monday 28 September for 12 months
Working hours: Monday to Fridays between 8am to 5pm, and 8am to 1pm on Saturdays.
From time to time we will need to undertake some overnight working to facilitate changes to the works phase and any carriageway resurfacing works.
Contractors: Conway Aecom
The works programme has been planned to provide as little disruption as possible. There will be three key phases of delivery during the works period to keep traffic flowing by limiting the need for traffic management measures such as lane closures and one-way road closures.
The key phases are building demolition and pre-commencement works, junction re-alignment works, and carriageway resurfacing works.
In the first phase of the programme we will be undertaking the demolition of the pharmacy and four-storey building above the Phone City shop / Casino. The demolition will allow us to widen the highway to provide the essential improvements to the junction.
The demolition will require a one-way road closure of Cricklewood Lane heading towards the A5 Cricklewood Broadway until summer 2021. Lane closures on the A5 Cricklewood Broadway will also be in place to facilitate the demolition and carry out the junction improvement works until September 2021.
A detailed presentation outlining the works can be viewed by clicking here and road signage clearly displayed on site.
How will it affect you?
While these works take place access to all properties and businesses will be maintained, and they will stay open as usual.
During these works it has also been necessary to temporarily close footpaths. Protective walkways have been installed to maintain the most direct route for pedestrians.
Bus stops will be temporarily relocated or closed to ensure that bus services can still operate as usual during the works. Clear signage will also be provided by TfL. A copy of the bus diversion routes can be found here.
Some parking bays may be suspended for the duration of the works to keep traffic moving safely and to maintain loading / unloading bays for business deliveries.
