Wembley High Road sewer works until the end of January?

The street signs say the end of January but this is what Brent Council posted on its website yesterday with a completion date of January 5th:

The sewer works on High Road, Wembley, are progressing well and the proposed end date for these works is now 5 January 2018.
To date Thames Water have:
  • Removed the traffic island
  • Excavated a shaft onto the sewer over seven meters deep
  • Tunnelled four meters downstream, towards Park Lane, to a point where there is no concrete in the sewer
  • Tunnelled upstream, towards Wembley triangle, eight and a half meters to the lateral connection from the former Brent House site and have tunnelled over fourteen meters to a point where all concrete has been removed.
  • Sink another shaft on the sewer
  • Replaced the sewer
Next steps:
  • Backfill the tunnels
  • Backfill the shaft
  • Permanent reinstatement of carriageway.

Well at least Thames Water is trying to be honest.

Feeling quite sorry for Thames Water who seem to be getting a lot of flack for something that is clearly not their fault and trying very hard to repair the damage as quickly as possible. The 3 months of disruption all down to Henley Homes whom I am still hoping will be made to pay for their careless mistake.
