Feltham Closure Starts 29th May

Starting on Tuesday 29 May, Hounslow Council and their partners will begin major traffic and transport improvements around Feltham Station, which are expected to last until early 2019. This will result in the part-closure of Hounslow Road and affect all bus routes serving Feltham Station and town centre.

The council is beginning a major campaign to alert residents and visitors to Feltham of these improvements and encourage travellers to re-plan their journeys to minimise the impact of these vital works. As the centre of Feltham will be particularly busy I wanted to ensure your staff, pupils and parents/carers are fully aware of the upcoming works so they can make the necessary adjustments to their usual travel plans.

The work, which includes expanding platforms at Feltham Rail Station, the closure of the nearby level crossing and one of the two existing pedestrian bridges, is expected to cause significant disruption and impact anyone travelling through the centre of Feltham.

We are encouraging anyone who might be affected to sign up to regular updates, which we will send out sporadically as the work progresses. If you produce a newsletter for parents/carers we would very much appreciate your support in including some brief information about the works within it; we can provide any copy you may require.

We have a webpage which is regularly updated with information. I encourage you to take a look at this for information. There is also a dedicated email address for enquiries and a sign up function for bulletin alerts. Find out more by clicking here.

We have produced a leaflet which I have attached for information and will also send you by post. You can also download this from our website by following the above link. If you would like more hard copies please contact me with how many you need and I will arrange for these to be sent to you.

We have produced a poster advertising the upcoming works. Again, if you have a suitable public area where this could be displayed please let me know and I can ensure a poster is sent to you.
