Drainage & Resurfacing Works in Hyde Park, 2 weeks from 24th September

The FriendsHPKG have been informed that Transport for London are going to carry out much needed drainage and re-surfacing works in Hyde Park.

To facilitate these works the West Carriage Drive southbound carriageway will close to all traffic from Victoria Gate to Coalbrookdale Gate for 2 weeks from the 24th September 2018. To clarify (for the duration of the works):

  • West Carriage Drive (southbound) and Victoria Gate (inbound only) will be closed from midnight on Sunday the 23rd September and will reopen at 5am on Monday 8th October 2018.
  • Alexandra Gate outbound will remain open serving traffic from South Carriage Drive.
  • The northbound carriageway of West Carriage Drive will remain open, with traffic able to enter the park via Alexandra Gate and leave via Victoria or Cumberland Gate.
  • Serpentine and Triangle car parks will remain open. Traffic will be able to gain access from the south via Alexandra Gate but upon exiting the carpark there will be a right turn only, travelling north.
  • Policeman’s path will be accessible from the south as above.
  • All parking bays on West Carriage Drive will remain operational.
  • Cycle routes will be unaffected by the works and will all operate as usual.
