Forward Look

Villiers Street / Embankment Place (Phase 9b)
The paving works will continue and the majority of work is expected to be completed here by the end of next week. The planting will be completed in due course.

John Adam Street (Phase 2)
There are some minor works required here towards the end of next week (from 2nd to 4th May) which may require a short duration closure while we complete some final carriageway and electrical works in this location.

Embankment Place (Phase 12)
If permissions are received, the small area of paving outside Embankment Underground Station emergency exit will be paved. There may be a requirement for a short duration closure towards the end of next week (from 2nd to 4th May) in this location whilst we complete some final testing of the new sliding bollards


Traffic Marshal
There is no longer a traffic marshal on-site.

Parking suspensions & taxi ranks
John Adam Street & Robert Street parking suspensions remain in place.

Spaces from the taxi rank on Embankment Place are suspended to give space to the installed welfare unit and to provide a turning space for vehicles exiting onto Northumberland Avenue.

If your property has a vault / basement that extends beneath the footway and possibly the carriageway, the works being undertaken may cause water ingress or dampness to appear when the ground is disturbed if the vault/basement has not been properly protected by tanking or other damp proofing.
Neither the council nor the contractor will be responsible for any such damage resulting from these works. It will be the responsibility of the property owner to ensure that the vault/basement is suitably protected against such damage. If you are the occupier, but not the owner of the property, you should make the owner aware of this notice.
