Major Chessington roadwork scheme running behind schedule
1:09pm Monday 25th October 2010 in News
One of the biggest roadworks projects in Chessington in recent years is running late, Kingston Council has said.
Repairs began in August on Garrison Lane, which runs past Chessington Community College and Chessington South station, to fix damage caused by ice, snow and traffic.
Final road resurfacing was meant to take place in half-term week of October.
But progress has slowed due to extreme wet weather and the current date for completion is now early November, Kingston Council said.
Barry Allen, neighbourhood manager for Chessington, said in a report to residents: "The excavation of the existing road exposed further areas of very poor ground beneath.
"The situation was exacerbated by the poor weather, which saturated the clay and required additional excavation in some areas.
"The combination of weather and extra dig has delayed the road surfacing works, which was completed last weekend."
The works are budgeted to cost £588,550.
