We've just been notified that Camden are going to be resurfacing part of West End Lane over the next two weekends. It feels like a plot to dig up West End Lane as much as possible and cause maximum disruption!
Here's the letter Camden are sending to local residents about this - the resurfacing will run from Sumatra Road to near Blackburn Road.
West End Lane between Sumatra Road and outside 144 – carriageway resurfacing
I write to inform you that the Council’s contractor VolkerHighways will shortly be carrying out works to the carriageway in West End Lane as part of Camden’s ongoing improvement programme. These works are scheduled to commence on 9 February 2013 and are expected to be completed by 16 February 2013. The work will be carried out on weekends between the hours of 8.00 am and 6.00 pm on Saturday and between the hours of 9:00am and 4:00pm on Sunday.
In order to carry out these works it may be necessary to suspend certain areas of parking, in which case you will need to make alternative parking arrangements.
Notices giving details of dates and times of any parking bay suspensions will be fixed to posts and street lighting columns. It is essential that you do not park in any areas where parking has been suspended. Any vehicles left in a prohibited area, or otherwise illegally parked, may be removed by the Council’s enforcement contractor or by the police. Please check the parking notices on a regular basis as changes to the works programme are sometimes unavoidable, necessitating changes to dates and times of parking bay suspensions.
Any vehicles that are removed will be taken to the Council’s vehicle compound at Regis Road in Kentish Town, from where they may be retrieved on payment of a penalty charge. The compound may be contacted on 020 7974 4797. The nearest London Underground station is Kentish Town; buses C2, 134, and 214 stop near the station. (In some cases vehicles may be moved to an adjoining street; if so, details of the exact location will be given on application to the vehicle compound and on payment of the penalty charge).
