Dear Resident / Business owner,
RE: Construction of speed humps on Oak Hill
I am writing to let you know that we will install two additional full road width speed humps on Oak Hill
between Hale End Road and Hollywood Way. This work will start on Monday 27 March 2017 and
should take two days to complete, weather permitting.
During the work, there will be temporary road changes:
Oak Hill closed to through traffic between Hale End Road and Holly Crescent
Parking suspended on Oak Hill between Hale End Road and Oak Hill Crescent.
Access to Oak Hill will be available via Galeborough Avenue, Oak Hill Crescent, and via
Pedestrians will still be able to walk along the street as normal.
These works are part of ongoing improvements to Highams Park Town Centre to improve road safety
and access for walking and cycling. We sent you a leaflet last year explaining the results from the
public consultation held in June and July 2016, and when the work would start. You can find this leaflet
online at www.enjoywalthamforest.co.uk/highams-park-town-centre/public-consultation
Work will usually take place between 8am and 5pm over the two days. The road will go back to normal
outside of these times. To allow us to carry out the road works safely and on time, please avoid parking
in the area. Look out for signs and cones to avoid parking in the wrong place as illegally parked
vehicles will get penalty notices and they may be removed - see reverse for details.
Please bear with us during construction so we can make these improvements to the area as soon as
possible. Our contractors will be working to keep disruption to an absolute minimum and we will post
regular construction updates online at www.enjoywalthamforest.co.uk/work-in-your-area/highamspark-town-centre/construction-update/
Thank you for your patience and in the meantime, if you wish to discuss this construction work, please
