Does anyone know what exactly they will be doing to the road between Horniman's Museum and the railway station? Clearly something on an epic scale but what?

We had a letter through our door which said "essential resurfacing works" were to start on the A205 on 14 March for approximately 3 weeks. It says they'll be working overnight and access to side roads may be restricted at that time.

I also heard it is to be a 20MPH zone whilst the works are carried out, on Honor Oak Road there is a TfL sign on a lamppost saying temporary enforcement measures may be used. I guess that would mean the lovely big yellow Gatso speedcams

Thanks for the info. I had a look Tfl and Highways Agency websites but no joy.

Today, 07:32 - Light traffic flowing well in the area - Work resumes at 2100 hours
Just proves we are East Dulwich as portrayed by the Media and authorities!!!

Great to see they're resurfacing the south circular. Shame about the traffic management though. Some of it is being managed manually by the workmen waving their hands about incoherently then shouting at motorists who turn the wrong way. Still, the road's already getting better and that's what matters I guess.

You get this all over London sadly. Cutting corners seems to be the name of the game for the contractors!

But shouldn't the council or Transport in London be managing the contractors, rather than letting them do what they want? If you really do get this all over London they must know about it?

As it is a red route it is managed by TfL, like anything the contractors aren't likely to be monitored that heavily, esp at night.
Usually the contractors management should watch over them, but due to pressurs he probably has to skirt all over London to the different sites. Or, the guys on the ground know he won't get out of his comfy bed on a Friday night!
Either way the only way a TfL project manager will visit is to sign the project off I would imagine.
Thats how most things work in construction!

Ahh does this explain all the machinery and bleeping I'm hearing at night? (with the balmy summer weather sleeping with the windows open); makes a change from the police sirens going towards the Rye
