Motorists are facing disruption in the Barnet and north-west London area due to a number of road closures for roadworks, including one programme lasting almost two months that is due to start tomorrow.

Notices from Barnet Council in this week’s edition of the Barnet Borough Times detail the extent of the closures and other restrictions that may be required while the works are carried out.

A 58-day programme of gas mains replacement works will lead to the closure of:

  • Hoop Lane NW11, between its junctions with Finchley Road and Meadway.
  • Meadway NW11, between its junction with Wild Hatch and No. 4 Temple Fortune Lane.

These closures will take place at various times from tomorrow and the alternative route for drivers during this closure is via Finchley Road, Temple Fortune Lane, Meadway and vice versa.

Another lengthy programme of works expected to last for five weeks is set to start at 8am on Monday.

This will involve the closure of Armitage Road NW11, at its junction with Woodstock Road, to allow a mobile crane to install steel works and other materials.

However, the notice states the works will only take place from 8am to 6pm on Monday, October 26 and November 10.

If the works do not or cannot commence on these dates they will start on November 17.

The alternative route during the closure will be via Accommodation Road, Woodstock Road and vice versa.

The road outside No. 71 Hyde Crescent NW9 is set to be closed from 8am on Saturday for two days to install a new water connection.

The diversion will be via Goldsmith Avenue, Hyde Crescent and vice versa.

High Road N20, between its junctions with St Margarets Road and Totteridge Lane, is due to be shut to vehicles overnight on Sunday from 10pm to 5.30am for sewer cleaning.

Traffic is advised to use Oakleigh Road North, Russell Lane, Osidge Lane, Chase Side, Cat Hill, Longmore Avenue, Great North Road and vice versa.

Fitzjohn Avenue EN5, outside Nos. 32 to 38, is set to be shut for two days from 8am on Monday to repair a collapsed sewer.

Motorists should use High Street, Normandy Avenue and Newlyn Road instead during this time.

More gas main replacement works mean a section of Layfield Road NW4 is set to be shut to motorists for two weeks from 8am on October 14.

The road is due to be shut between its westernmost junction with Brent Park Road and its westernmost junction with Layfield Crescent.

The diversion will be via Layfield Road, Brent Park Road and vice versa.
