Extended utility works have begun on Whitton Road and are expected to last until the end of January.

A spokesman for Richmond Council said the “major works” will take place outside 84 Whitton Road, “in order to provide essential services to nine new-build residential properties”.

Works will begin with a sewer connection from January 8 until January 19, followed by collaborative works by Gas and Thames Water from January 22 to 27.

Temporary traffic lights will be in place and drivers should expect delays to their journey during this time.
