The approved designs for the Heart of Hackbridge scheme allowed for a 3 space parking bay next to the entrance to Saxon House. However, during the implementation of the works it became apparent that the parking bays would encroach on Virgin Media cabling and that this would need to be moved by Virgin Media before we could complete the parking bay works. The council has been working closely with Virgin Media in order to secure implementation of their works as soon as possible.
Virgin Media has now confirmed that they will be able to start tomorrow morning. Virgin Media will be working in Hackbridge this Thursday and Friday and will continue next Monday and Tuesday. Works will be completed by next Tuesday evening.
The follow on programme of works to complete the parking bay, in line with the approved scheme, is not likely until the new year for a range of reasons including lead in times for different sub contractors. Updates will be posted on this web page.
