Reminder: Breakspear Road South closure

Reminder: Closure of Breakspear Road South starting 6am on Saturday 20 July

Posted on Jul 18th 2019 by HS2 in Hillingdon

We’re continuing our preparatory works in your area. As part of this work we need to close a section of Breakspear Road South to safely complete the construction of the new Merck, Sharpe and Dohme access road and re-position and reinstall various utility and service connections.

We recognise road closures and diversions affect both the public and the local community and will cause significant impacts on your journey plans. We apologise for the disruption that these works will cause to journeys in the area.

We have scheduled the work to be completed in three phases, which we explain fully below.

Phase 1 – Full road closure for 28 days, starting Saturday 20 July at 6am to Friday 16 August at 8pm

Phase 2 – Northbound lane closure for 16 days, starting Friday 16 August at 8pm to Saturday 31 August at 6am

Phase 3 – Full road closure for 15 days, starting Saturday 31 August at 6am to Saturday 14 September 2019 at 8pm

We encourage all drivers to follow the advised diversion route shown in the notification, which can be found hereWe have created a dedicated Breakspear Road South Closure page on our website here.

The closure will begin north of the Merck, Sharpe and Dohme entrance and end north of Gatesmead Farm. You can see a map of the closure and the diversion on this page here. Access will be maintained to residential properties at all times.

During the closure Newyears Green Lane will be access only from Breakspear Road South. To help alleviate and mitigate disruption, we will be installing additional signage at other local link roads. The advisory signage with a ‘No through route, please follow diversion’ message will be implemented on the following local roads

  • Long Lane
  • High Street
  • Eastcote Road
  • Duck Hill Road
  • Ladygate Lane
  • Sharps Lane
