Hendon Wood Lane closed until mid-June UK News

Motorists are warned of traffic disruptions, with one road due to be closed for about three months.

Hendon Wood Lane is due to close from March 7 as Affinity Water embarks on a program to replace water mains in the area.

The water supplier says the entire road near Arkley will be closed between the Barnet Road and Highwood Hill junctions until mid-June.

Residents and businesses will still be able to access Hendon Wood Lane during the closure, but only from Highwood Hill.

Affinity Water says the closure is needed to improve water mains in the area, with water mains being replaced at Hendon Wood Lane, Highwood Hill and Totteridge Common.

The company says the new pipes are “essential” to help reduce disruption from leaks and bursts, as well as to continue to provide a “reliable, high-quality” water supply.

The works have been agreed with Barnet Council and the Greater London Authority, with Cadent Gas and Openreach also carrying out work in the area at the same time to reduce the disruption period at Hendon Wood Lane by seven weeks, according to Affinity Water.

Hendon Wood Lane is a popular route for drivers, particularly at rush hour, as motorists avoid the A1 between Stirling Corner and Apex Corner.

Affinity Water says detour signs will be in place for drivers.

A statement on its website read: “From March 7 until mid-June there will be a complete road closure on Hendon Wood Lane with a traffic diversion in place for the duration of the works.

“This is approved by the Highways Authority and is the safest route for all types of vehicles. It is likely that there will be some traffic disruption at peak times, and you may need to allow more than time for your journeys.”
