Greg Hands welcomes progress on National Grid works on the King’s Road

Following the start of the first phase of the replacement of the gas mains in February, the King’s Road – which straddles the border between Chelsea and Fulham – has been one-way eastbound between Gunter Grove and Edith Grove. With this first phase due to finish on schedule at the end of April, the second phase will see the King’s Road one-way eastbound between Stanley Bridge (the railway bridge to the west of Lots Road) and Gunter Grove.
 
Throughout the work all shops and businesses will continue being open as usual, and National Grid affirms that they will maintain access for residents and businesses.
 
Commenting on the progress, Greg Hands said: “It is reassuring to hear that the replacement of the gas mains on the King’s Road is on schedule. This is a big project, which is having an impact on residents and businesses in both parts of my constituency.
 
“However, I am assured that the coordination group chaired by Nick Botterill, Conservative Councillor for Parsons Green and Walham, with representatives from both local Councils, National Grid, Transport for London, as well as local residents and businesses, is listening to concerns and seeking to mitigate the impact of the works.”
