How the Coronavirus is affecting Road Maintenance and Travel

Following a period of service reductions introduced in late March to May due to the Coronavirus health crisis most Highways services are now operating normally.

All essential repairs and planned maintenance to footways, carriageways and street lighting are now being undertaken to schedule. This includes residents requests for vehicle crossovers.

The impact of the health crisis on transport and travel has been more severe and the delivery of the Council’s planned transportation work programme is on hold due to the suspension of annual funding from Transport for London (TfL). An alternative transport programme (the London Streetspace Programme) focussed on the transport priorities during the health crisis to promote more active travel by walking and cycling is being undertaken instead and funded via TfL.

The parking management programme consisting of controlled parking zones and other localised parking controls as approved by the Council’s Traffic & Road Safety Advisory Panel is being taken forward to schedule.

Major projects such as at Headstone Manor flood Alleviation Scheme and the new public square at Greenhill Place are also currently being implemented to schedule.
