messageWhateley Road C.P. Road. Road works.
Posted by DulwichFox 05 August, 2019 12:15

The Road works at the junction of Whateley Road C.P. Road. seem to be going on and on

This is causing a lot of disruption to traffic and pedestrians.
Also having 2 Bus stops closed. P13.

I spoke to one of the workmen there at midday. He told be it will be closed for another 1 - 2 weeks.
and then they will be closing the other side if Crystal Palace road to work on the pavements there.

So more disruption.

Why do Conways take so long with any works they are awarded. I remember them doing Pavements on Lordship Lane.

I am convinced if they were issued with a fine £5,000 - £10,000 per day over schedule, this work would be
completed in less than half the time they are taking.

I canít get over how many times Lordship Lane has been dug up since it was resurfaced! It is absolutely ridiculous!

The Thames water patch opp co-op is an absolute nightmare

Foxy, the signs on lamposts around the CPR/Whateley Road works clearly say the period 22/07/19 to 16/08/19 is when the works will be carried-out.

While there may be an argument for complaining about the works taking too long at some stage, I think complaining theyíre not finished two weeks before their own advertised completion date may be slightly premature.
They are working part of weekends from what Iíve seen, so one could assume thereís actually some urgency in their efforts.
