In correspondence with a local resident regarding the lack of advance notice road signs of regarding major work on the Wembley High Road following a sewer blockage, Brent Council today responded:
With regards to signage, Cappagh, who are undertaking these works on behalf of Thames Water informed Brent Council that they had placed Advanced Warning Signage on the highway. However, when officers attended the location today, they found that was not the case. We have not been given an explanation as to why this signage was not in place but have been given assurance that they will be in place by 4pm today.Officers will monitor the site on a daily basis to ensure works are progressing according to plan. We have asked that working hours be extended to reduce the period disruption period. We are fully aware that these works will cause disruption especially on Wembley Event Days and are doing all we can to mitigate the congestion caused.We have placed information on our website and will update the information as required.
I can only apologise for the disruption these Emergency/Urgent works have caused.
