Trial holes were dug in August to establish the location of underground utility equipment in the vicinity of proposed kerb realignments at this junction. These investigations revealed that some BT equipment would need to be diverted. BT has indicated that it is likely to cost around £600,000 to divert their equipment. Since TfL would have to meet this cost, this impacts significantly on the viability of the scheme. TfL is therefore reviewing the designs to establish whether amendments are possible to avoid these services, whilst minimising the impact on nearby mature trees and so maintaining the character of the area. TfL expect to complete the review before the end of the year and will contact you with an update at that time.
