Oxford Street – Bond Street – Utility Delays

London Underground have now officially confirmed what we all feared that the time required to move the large water mains means that work will not, as had been anticipated, be finished during November or indeed prior to Christmas. This means that there will be a period during which works will not take place over Christmas and New Year and works will be carried out for a period of, currently estimated at 13 weeks in 2012.

This is disappointing because it will continue to adversely affect the businesses and residents in the area.

Although everybody understands that the diversions are both required and are a complex piece of engineering it is disappointing that we could not have had more notice of the problem which must have been apparent for some time.

I attach an official update from London Underground to whom I have expressed my concerns.
