  • a dangerous situation
  • an unplanned interruption to a supply
  • loss to an existing supply

Major roadworks may take 11 days or longer. They may need to close a road for a short while.

Stanhope Road bridge project

A project to replace the 150-year-old Stanhope Road bridge and protect the capital’s longest local nature reserve is underway.

Stanhope Road will be closed for around 6 weeks from mid-June 2024, and for a further 2 weeks in late October.

During the closure, traffic will be diverted via Shepherds Hill, Crouch End Hill and Hornsey Lane. Signs will be in place to advise motorists. The W5 bus will run on a diverted route via Archway Road during the road closure. Full details of this diversion will be publicised ahead of the closure and updates can be found on the TfL website.

Single alternate lane traffic signals will operate at other times until the completion of the works.

The Parkland Walk will be diverted onto a temporary pedestrian walkway until the completion of the scheme.
