Lambeth Council is monitoring Thames Water’s management of the works to minimise disruption and ensure they are completed as soon as possible. We are working to ensure people can still access Leigham Court Road while the repairs are ongoing.

Local traffic diversions are now in place and all properties remain accessible. However, motor vehicles cannot turn left onto Leigham Court Road until the emergency works have been completed.

The unplanned works are taking place near the Streatham Wells Low Traffic Neighbourhood, which is now in operation. The LTN has launched today (Monday) and traffic restrictions should be observed.
