Emergency electricity works in Central Road

Due to recent high voltage faults on the network and recent interruptions to our electricity supply UK Power Networks plan to overlay a 250 metre section of new cable in Central Road, Worcester Park.

The works will involve placing multi-phase traffic signals in the carriageway to enable them to excavate and install a new piece of high voltage network.

The works will take place from the entrance to Waitrose car park in Stone Place and then down Central Road to just beyond the junction of Green Lane.

The works will start on the 28 July 2014 and last for 4 weeks. They will be working extended hours whilst works are in progress to try to minimise disruption.
