Newly Improved Green Set to Reopen in October
Including new playgrounds, pathways, lighting and CCTV
Shepherd's Bush Green is set to reopen in October after refurbishment work is finally completed.
Contractors FM Conway Ltd, were forced to down tools on several occasions due to our miserable wet summer and the discovery of contaminants in the underlying soil.
However, circumstances made work on the green practically impossible and meant the completion date was pushed back by several months.
The only time work stopped was for two weeks during the Olympics but it started again on August 13, meaning that the common will be fully open again this autumn.
" We have been incredibly unlucky with the terrible weather and also with finding contaminants - that has obviously hampered progress.
The Grade II listed war memorial has been reset onto a new granite stepped plinth and paths on the green will be resurfaced, with several being widened.
Pathways around the entire perimeter of the green are open to the public, and access across the green is available from the corner of Goldhawk Road to Uxbridge Road, and across the eastern end from Shepherd's Bush South to Uxbridge Road.
