Details of Hall Lane closure 31 July to 03 September 2023
When the current closure of Ingrebourne Gardens ends on 30 July 2023, the second phase of the works will begin. This will involve the complete closure to traffic of Hall Lane from the junction with Ingrebourne Gardens to just south of the junction with The Fairway.
The second phase closure will last from Monday 31 July until Wednesday 23 August 2023 and then from Tuesday 29 August until Sunday 03 September 2023.
During these times buses will be diverting as follows –
- Route 248 – Will divert via Ingrebourne Gardens in both directions and will still serve the Upminster Park Estate but not Avon Road.
- Route 347 – Diverted via Avon Road, Front Lane and Ingrebourne Gardens in both directions. Route 347 will be diverting via Avon Road, so that users can catch the 347 to either Front Lane or Upminster Station, where they will be able to pick up the 248.
These works are likely to cause considerable disruption around this area of Hall Lane and the bus service around there and Avon Road will be very limited. The Route 347 bus operates four time a day in each direction on Monday to Saturday, with the first buses being mid-morning and the last in the late afternoon.
Cranham Ward councillors did ask for Havering Council and TfL to look into options to improve bus services but unfortunately a solution could not be found.
