Rye Lane due to reopen to traffic next weekend

Rye Lane should be open to traffic by Sunday, June 9, after gas engineering work was completed months ahead of schedule.

Gas company SGN said the mains work that led the Peckham road’s closure since the beginning of January had been completed and its team were now reinstating the road.

Pipes in better condition than expected and new techniques all helped speed up the replacement work originally planned until January 2020.

Currently Rye Lane is closed to cars, buses and cyclists between Hanover Park and Sternhall Lane with a diversion via Hanover Park and Consort Road, and temporary traffic lights in place near Copeland Road.

SGN general manager, Drew Reynolds, said: “We’re pleased to announce that we’ve completed the final engineering work ahead of schedule and we’ll be able to safely reopen Rye Lane to motorists and public transport after a period of reinstatement.

“We’d like to thank residents, traders, shoppers and road users for their continued patience and understanding while we’ve carried out this essential work to ensure the Peckham community can enjoy the benefits of a safe and reliable gas supply for many years to come.”
