Maintenance work to George Lane Viaduct


Maintenance work is to be carried out on the George Lane Viaduct in South Woodford for up to 12 weeks.

“We will be replacing the expansion joints on the Viaduct as part of our routine maintenance schedule,” said a Redbridge Council spokesperson.

The work will begin on 2 April, with the Viaduct closed in both directions that night between 9pm and 6am (local diversions, including for buses, will be in place).

After the night works of 2 April 2024, the Viaduct will be open to traffic but the road width will be reduced to accommodate the replacement of the joints. This work will take up to 12 weeks to complete.

“There may be restrictions on parking on the viaduct to ensure traffic can pass safely past the works. The council will also be undertaking a Principal Inspection of the structure over the coming weeks and months as part of its routine structures inspections programme. We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the closures and the part lane closure, which are essential for these works.”
