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 4 October 2020 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 have been 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.
These key phases were building demolition and pre-commencement works, junction re-alignment works, and carriageway resurfacing works.
In the first phase of the programme we demolished the four-storey building on Cricklewood Lane. This allowed us to start the highway widening to provide the essential improvements to the junction.
New modernised signals have now been installed and new road markings completed at the crossings. All bus stops have now been restored, and bus route diversions have ended.
We have now completed the resurfacing of the footway and will be clearing equipment and materials from the site. A few minor outstanding parts of the programme are due to be completed by the end of October 2021.
How will it affect you?
While these remaining works take place, access to all properties and businesses will be maintained, and they will stay open as usual.
Some pedestrian diversions remain in place, and there may be some lane closures needed on the A5 Cricklewood Lane and Cricklewood Broadway while we complete the remainder of the works. Clear signage will always be provided.
