Thames Water - forthcoming works in Northwold Road

Communication from Thames Water which residents should have received through the door 

Water main improvements in Northwold Road
Dear Customer,
Wed like to tell you about three related pieces of work in your area.
Thames Water is currently working in Northwold Road to reline a large water mainTemporary traffic signals are being used to maintain the flow of traffic, and from mid-January we plan to implement a one-way system so that the remainder of the work can be completed safely. A local diversion will be in place for vehicles travelling east towards Upper Clapton Road. This relining work will be completed in March 2014.
As part of this relining work we need to open a damagedvalve at the junction of Stamford Hill and Northwold Road.To work on the valve safely we need to close the road forsix consecutive nights.  On the first night the road will be closed from 9pm and on the following nights it will be closed from 10pm.  The road will re-open each morning at 5.30am, with a plate covering the excavation. Southbound traffic will be diverted at night along Clapton Common and Upper Clapton Road from the top of Stamford Hill.Northbound traffic will be unaffected. This work is planned to start on Sunday 12 January 2014.  
During the night-time closures, the buses will be diverted along Cazenove Road and Fountayne Road. Funded by Thames Water, the London Borough of Hackney will be carrying out improvements to the speed cushions and forming raised speed tables at two crossing points in Cazenove Road so that the road is suitable for double-decker buses.  The work will take two weeks to complete and will use traffic lights and limited road closures. Thiswork will start on Monday December, and be completed before Christmas.
We’ve been consulting with the London Borough of Hackney Highways and Environmental Health Department regarding this work to ensure they are co-ordinated anddisruption is kept to a minimum.
