A suspected gas leak has meant that West Hill road has been closed, while the gas suppliers carry out emergency repairs.

SGN has been forced to close the road I the interest of safety while they undertake the repairs.

The work will continue until the end of the week and, following a consultation with TFL and Wandsworth Council, motorists travelling from Wandsworth High Street are being diverted via Upper Richmond Road and Roehampton Lane.

Hannah Brett, a spokesperson for SGN said: “We appreciate roadworks can be frustrating and we thank motorists and residents for your support while we carry out these emergency repairs.”
