Ponders End diversion in place until July

The latest information on the towpath closure between Ponders End and the Lea Valley Viaduct to the south is that it will remain closed between 7.30am and 6pm daily until Friday 10 July.

Diversions remain in place via Lee Park Way and Meridian Way.

The Electricity Alliance, a partnership between National Grid and Balfour Beatty, is currently refurbishing the overhead electricity transmission line between substations at Waltham Cross, Brimsdown and Tottenham. Work involves replacing the overhead line fittings, painting and work on the steel structures.

National Grid Project Manager Simon Chandler says: “These closures are needed to ensure that we can carry out the work safely. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and we will make every effort to ensure we complete the project as quickly and considerately as possible.”
