Maguire Street Road Closure Extension

Thames Water has announced that they will require an extension for their works on the Shad Thames Pumping Station, which means that the hoardings on Maguire Street will remain up through May. 


They recently supplied this update on the works:


"Thames Water’s work at Shad Thames Pumping Station has been delayed over recent months due to some major engineering issues that have required alternative designs in order to progress solutions.


We are now faced with the final but most complex engineering work to replace the eight foot (8’) penstock within the Southwark and Bermondsey Storm Relief Sewer that lies beneath Maguire Street, adjacent to the pumping station.


In order to complete the work, we require a further twelve weeks beyond the end of February, until 25 May 2019 although we are hoping to finish by the end of April if possible. We are extremely sorry that the road closure and diversion will need to remain in place until then, and apologise for the inconvenience that this causes."




Full road closure at Maguire Street April 2018 until 25 May 2019 at the latest.


Working hours are 08:00 to 18:00 Monday to Friday and out of hours on occasion, in coordination with the low tide timetable, including some Saturdays.



Maguire Street will be closed until 25 May 2019 at the latest.


Work inside Shad Thames Pumping Station will continue throughout 2019.


The traffic diversion route on Shad Thames will remain in place until May 2019 at the latest.

Helicopter noise

At the STRA AGM a question was asked about what can be done about helicopter noise in the area.


Anood, our local Councillor, contacted Caroline Pidgeon at the GLA, and received the following reply.  Anood will follow up in the New Year.


You will see from the links below that this is a problem that is receiving London-wide attention.
"Caroline will indeed ask some Mayoral Questions in the New Year, however in the meantime I thought this information from her website might be useful.

Caroline also asked a couple of written Mayoral Questions back in September.   I thought they might be useful.
I also enclose a written Parliamentary Question asked by Tom Brake:
