Whatley Crescent drain works

As part of the works to construct the dive structure at Bayswater Junction, a section of a water drain situated within the rail corridor has been relocated. This required some out of hours’ work and the temporary closure of a section of Whatley Crescent. While the out of hours works have been completed, rehabilitation of Whatley Crescent, where the works were undertaken, is ongoing.

After completing open cut pipe works on the main drain relocation, the focus is now on the construction of inlet and outlet structures for the drain. Rehabilitation of Whatley Crescent, where the works were undertaken, is in progress now that tunnelling and backfilling is complete. 

The temporarily closed section of Whatley Crescent has been reopened on September 5, 2018.
