The National Grid gas mains repairs which have caused traffic delays in Uxbridge Road for almost two months are finally scheduled to end this Friday, June 19.

The repairs were scheduled to last until June 5, but have overrun until this week.

The work is being done to replace a large, 26 inch ageing metal gas pipe with newer pipes made from a more durable material say National Grid.

The works required the closure of the westbound carriageway between Shepherds Bush Green and Lime Grove. Bus passengers are also affected with bus routes 207 and 283 diverting up Lime Grove to maintain a westbound service along Uxbridge Road, while all other routes have been diverting via Askew Road.

While carrying out the repairs, National Grid were blamed by H&F Council for a burst water main which caused extensive flooding Shepherd's Bush on Thursday April 30.

The flooding, in roads around Wood Lane and Shepherd's Bush Green caused the water supply to thousands of homes being cut off throughout the day.

Things returned to normal the following day when a team from Thames Water repaired the burst main.

For more information on the work call National Grid on 0800 096 5678.
