The work will begin from September 4

As work continues to connect Abbey Wood with Reading and Heathrow, resident are being warned they could lose their parking bays for up to six weeks.

Crossrail developers will be carrying out drainage works on the western side of Abbey Terrace along the double yellow lines, meaning parking bays on the eastern side will have to be suspended.

Once drainage works are complete, work will begin on a new footway at the end of the cul-de-sac, with bollards installed and resurfacing work also taking place.

A spokesperson from the £14.8billion development said work would be carried out during daytime hours from September 4.

Once opened, Crossrail, now known as the Elizabeth Line, will terminate at Abbey Wood, running through London to Reading, as well as providing services to Heathrow and Shenfield in Essex.

It is expected to fully open in December 2019.

Developers have apologised for any inconvenience caused.
