A117 Woolwich Manor Way Bridge Works


Work to replace the two worn-out bridge expansion joints on the A117 Woolwich Manor Way ‘Rowing Course / Sir Steve Redgrave’ Bridge will commence on Tuesday 19 November between 22:00 to 06:00. This work will last approximately three nights, or until it is completed.

To ensure the safety of those using the road, traffic management will be put in place on the A117 Woolwich Manor Way between the Gallions Roundabout and Fishguard Way. Southbound traffic will be diverted via A1020 Royal Albert Way, Connaught Bridge, A112 Connaught Road, and A112 Albert Road. This will make use of the existing traffic management arrangement that are in place for the Crossrail project. Northbound traffic will be controlled by traffic signals and be escorted through the works area using a ‘convoy’ system.
Diversion signs will be used to guide A112, A117, and A1020 traffic through the area, keeping to the prescribed diversion. Advance warning signs will be placed on A1020
Buses using the A117, on route 474 will follow the diversion from the start of works to end of daily service.
The works will bring benefits to road users by eliminating the need to replace the carriageway plates of the expansion joints for many years. Once the works are completed this will also reduce the need for future large scale maintenance of this road surface.
As with all works on the Transport for London Road Network, we must balance possible disruption to residents with disruption to traffic. Working at night provides us with the best chance to complete these works as quickly as possible with as little disruption as possible.
