More roadworks misery for drivers

DRIVERS are facing more disruption coming into Henley due to roadworks.

Gas main replacement work began in Greys Road yesterday and is scheduled to last up to 12 weeks.

However, town councillor Will Hamilton, who lives in Greys Road, said the sub-contractor hoped to finish within three weeks.

Temporary traffic lights are in place.

The work involves replacing all metal pipes within 30 metres of properties with plastic ones.

It started near the Saracen’s Head pub and will involve 150m sections of the road at a time.

Forefront Utilities is carrying out the work on behalf of Southern Gas Networks.

The work comes on top of emergency sewer repairs being carried out in West Street for up to two.

Contractors are working on a stretch of the road at its junction with Adwell Square, near the fire station.

There is no waiting at any time while the work takes place but there is access to West Street for residents and the fire service. The one-way restrictions have been temporarily lifted at both ends.
