RMT Roads Bulletin – 3rd August 2018

Victoria Embankment – From Monday 6 August until mid-September 2018, there will be no access to Victoria Embankment for westbound vehicles beyond Southwark Bridge.
The Road will be closed completely between Southwark Bridge and Westminster Bridge.
This is to allow Cadent Gas to undertake investigatory works on a gas main which was damaged during works on the Super Sewer. The results of this investigation will determine whether the road will need to be closed for a longer period of time in the future to facilitate repairs that might be needed.
Delays are expected.
TFL are advising that If your journey would normally use the Embankment for destinations beyond Westminster Bridge, you will need to use an alternative route such as the Inner Ring Road north towards Euston Road or south towards Vauxhall Bridge. If you do not need access to central London, using routes such as the A406 North Circular, the A205 South Circular or the M25 (yes, the M25!!) could mean a quicker journey.
