Dear Stakeholder,

A105 Green Lane junction with Portland Rise and Gloucester Drive

Transport for London (TfL) has appointed CVU (Colas, VolkerHighways and URS) to replace the traffic lights on A105 Green Lane at the junction with Portland Rise and Gloucester Drive. Works will be taking place on the footway and carriageway. The works area is shown on the map below.

To ensure the safety of road users and workers carrying out the works, traffic management involving temporary traffic lights will be deployed on site during these works.

Why are we doing this work?

CVU on behalf of TfL are replacing Traffic Signals that have reached the end of their 15 year life cycle. The modernisation of the traffic signals will improve reliability and maintenance.

The Green Lane junction is an important route for through road uses, and as such is a difficult route to maintain. We have arranged the work into a suitable number of phases to reduce the amount of disruption caused and to maintain road capacity as much as possible at all times.

The Road Modernisation Plan is the biggest investment for a generation consisting of hundreds of projects to transform junctions, bridges, tunnels and pedestrian areas. Working with London’s boroughs it will make our roads safer and more reliable, and London will be a better place in which to live, work and travel.

What times will the work take place?

The improvement works are planned to start on Monday 2 March 2015 and continue for approximately two weeks depending on the weather conditions.

The works will be carried out in phases, footway works will be taking place Monday to Saturday between 08:00 and 18:00.


Carriageway works will be taking place on Monday to Thursday nights between 22:00 and 03:30.


What we would like you to know

Transport for London is firmly committed to minimising disruption. We have worked closely with our contractor, CVU and the London Borough of Hackney in order to reduce the impact of these works on road users, local residents and businesses as far as possible.
