Cadent Gas – the new name for National Grid Gas Distribution – is continuing its gas main replacement work along Fulham Road.
This ongoing work entails replacing and upgrading the gas main from 15 Gunter Grove, along Fulham Road, past the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, to the junction with Beaufort Street. The work is scheduled to take place from May to September 2017.
During certain periods of this work, the westbound lane of Fulham Road will be closed between Beaufort Street and Gunter Grove. Temporary traffic signals will also be in place. Fernshaw Road will be closed until mid-July at the junction of Fulham Road, with access and egress via the King’s Road with a signed diversion route along Edith Grove and Gunter Grove.
As with the previous stage of the work on the King’s Road, Cadent Gas is organising stakeholder engagement meetings with local residents and businesses concerned about their work on Fulham Road. These meetings are chaired by local Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea Councillor, Kim Taylor-Smith, and are attended by Transport for London officials.
Chelsea & Fulham’s Conservative Parliamentary Candidate, Greg Hands, has already represented the concerns of local residents, businesses, and stakeholders to National Grid during the previous stage of the work on the King’s Road. He assisted in mitigating the impact from the works, and he sought clarification of National Grid’s compensation scheme for local businesses.
Commenting on the gas main replacement, Greg Hands said: “It is reassuring to hear that meetings of the community liaison group for this project are taking place. This is a big project, which is having an ongoing impact on residents and businesses in both parts of my constituency.
“I hope that, working together, RBKC, TfL, Cadent, and local stakeholders will be able to overcome any difficulties that this project may present over the next six months.”
