Just a bijou nudgette: Parking stops being free in Hillingdon from 15th June.
We have been informed of Major works to supply HV power lines to the HS2 site stationed in Ruislip Golf Course. Works will commence 4th June 2020 for approx 12 weeks along Ickenham Road between Ruislip Golf Club and High Street Ruislip.
Given the traffic sensitivity of Ickenham road and traffic management required to accommodate these works, it is expected that these works will cause considerable disruption to Hillingdons road network.
In light of the above, these types of work would normally have been negotiated to be normally done during the school summer holidays however, given the extent (900meters), estimated duration and traffic management involved, it was deemed better to commence these works prior to the school summer holidays when traffic is still considerably less given the current climate surrounding Covid – 19, rather than waiting until School summer holidays when works would have extended well into September when the likelihood of local businesses and work streams resume back to normal.
Works will be done in two phases:
Phase one: Ickenham Road between Sharps Lane roundabout to High Street Ruislip.
Traffic management involved to accommodate these works will involve an eastbound closure of Ickenham road between Sharps Lane roundabout and High Street Ruislip, A hard closure of Sharps Lane at its junction with Ickenham Road along with 4 way temp lights at its roundabout of Wood Lane, Kingsend, & Ickenham Road.
Full diversions are in place to accommodate both closures.
Phase two – Ickenham Road between Sharps Lane and the entrance to Ruislip Golf course.
Traffic management will involve 2/3 way temp traffic lights.
Given the nature and sensitivity of Ickenham road these works will be monitored daily. HS2/UKPN have also been instructed to work seven days a week to expedite progress.
From Monday 15 June, customers with a 60+ London Oyster photocard, Older Person’s Freedom Pass or English National Concessionary Scheme pass will not be able to use their card between 04:30 and 09:00 Monday to Friday. This is to enable social distancing on the public transport network and help control the spread of coronavirus. If you have no option other than to use public transport during the morning peak, we recommend that you travel using pay as you go with a contactless card or device or an Oyster card. For more information, please visit www.tfl.gov.uk/fares.
Customers with a Disabled Freedom Pass are unaffected and will, as usual, still be able to travel at all times using their Pass.
We know that being able to plan your journey is especially important to you. If you do need to travel, it may be helpful to know that we have staff at all Tube, TfL Rail and London Overground stations, and they are here to help should you need advice, information and assistance.
We operate a Turn-up-and-go service on the London Underground, London Overground and most of TfL Rail. This means you do not have to pre-book assistance to get help at our stations. Everyone is welcome to use the service. Click here for more information.
To ensure safer journeys for everyone, we are continuing to take measures across our network to enable social distancing of 2 metres, where possible. This means:
• If a visually impaired person requests customer assistance, underground staff will arrange a special taxi to take them to their destination station
• We will maintain a two-metre distance when supporting customers with a mobility impairment (for example, by providing manual boarding ramps)
• In situations where face coverings make communication difficult, our staff will use written messages on paper, whiteboards or mobile devices
When there are queues outside the station, customers who identify themselves as disabled are allowed to enter the station without queuing.
Most of our stations are only accepting contactless or Oyster to pay for travel. Some stations are still accepting cash. Click here to find out which stations are still accepting cash
Please continue to avoid public transport, where possible, to free up the limited space available to those who have no alternative way to travel.
We thank you again for all your help as we work together to keep everyone safe.
