Smoothing the way

Twenty-two roads will be resurfaced in the borough as a highway maintenance programme begins in Merton on Wednesday 6 October 2004.

The work will take place from 9am – 4pm and will take between one and four days to complete, depending on the length of road being resurfaced and the weather. Residents have been sent an information leaflet outlining the works, and will also be sent a letter from the contractor, Kiely Bros Ltd, to let them know before the work starts in their streets.

As the work involves resurfacing the full width of the carriageway, there will be no parking on the carriageways and in the area of the works. In addition there will be times when it will not be possible for vehicles to have access to properties.

The council will display ‘No Parking’ signs the day before the work begins in a road and residents should make alternative parking arrangements. Any vehicles that obstruct the work will be issued with parking tickets and relocated.

Residents who do not have parking zone permits or cannot make alternative arrangements can contact the council for a temporary permit to park in the zone adjacent to their street.

For a temporary permit contact the council on 020 8545 3428 or 4134.
