The construction of a new footbridge to the Brent Cross railway station development is set to lead to a temporary road closure lasting for a total of five weeks from the start of next month.

A notice from the London Borough of Barnet in this week’s Barnet Borough Times states the closure of a section of Geron Way is required to allow crane oversail.

The road is set to be shut between its junction with the north car park access to Brent Cross Retail Park and a point approximately 210 metres south-east of the junction while the works take place.

The order will for the closure will start at 12.01am on Sunday, July 4 and is expected to last for five weeks. However, the restrictions will only be in place from July 4 to July 16 and July 29 to August 2.

In addition to the closure, temporary at any time waiting and loading restrictions will be introduced on both sides of Geron Way in the section of the road affected by the closure.

The alternative route for motorists will be via Edgware Road (south-east bound), Edgware Road (north-east bound) and Staples Corner roundabout.

Before then, more crane works are set to cause the closure of Winnington Road, between Nos. 56 and 60, from 8am on Saturday for two days.

If the works do not start on Saturday though, the notice states they will begin on either July 3 or July 10.

The diversion during the closure will be via Winnington Road, Ingram Avenue, Wildwood Road, Meadway, Holne Chase, Winnington Road and vice versa.

Northolm, at its junction with Gibbs Green, is also due to be closed for five days from 8am on Monday for roadworks.

Access for residents will be maintained during this time.
