Answered By: 
Peter Hendy (Commissioner, Transport for London)

The main works started in summer 2005 with traffic management in place, mostly at night, outside peak hours, for various associated works.

The most visible activity was during the installation of beams for the Wales Farm Road Bridge. Local bridge contraflow arrangements were put in place in September this year, limiting the A40 to a single lane in each direction at certain times. This arrangement worked successfully during lower traffic flows at night. Similar arrangements will be put in place next January when beams will be lifted in at night for the Perryn Road Bridge.
