Construction work on Brentford Community Stadium and the associated new homes started in April and is now well underway. In order to connect utilities such as water, electricity, gas and telecommunications to the site, Brentford Football Club and EcoWorld London, the development contractor for the site (formerly known as Be Living), needs to close Lionel Road South, which runs from the South Circular Road to the M4 and A4. This has been approved by London Borough of Hounslow and Transport for London (TfL) and is expected to run from 2 July through to 21 October (although an extended period to 31 December has been allowed for in case of any delays). During this time, the road will be closed to cars, motorcycles and other vehicles but will remain open to pedestrians and cyclists.
The utility works, by different companies, have been carefully co-ordinated to all take place during this timeframe to avoid intermittent disruption over a longer period of time and to shorten the overall construction timeline. During the closure to vehicles, traffic will be diverted via Chiswick High Road (A205) and Great West Road (A4), and via Kew Bridge Road, High Street (Brentford), Ealing Road and Great West Road (A4).
A number of measures will be taken to ensure that road users of Lionel Road South are aware of the closure, including:
- Yellow road signs placed on approaching roads;
- Special notification to the emergency services and TfL;
- Street notices (A4) along Lionel Road South itself;
- A press notice in local media;
- Notification to each of the main navigation apps.
Brentford Football Club will be supporting this by sending out communication through its database, social media channels and website at www.brentfordcommunitystadium.com.
The Brentford Community Stadium development is part of the wider regeneration of this area known as Brentford East and will deliver a 17,250 seat new stadium for Brentford Football Club, together with more than 900 new homes, a hotel, and a public square with shops and cafes. . The Club is due to move to the new Brentford Community Stadium in December 2019, with the first residents moving into the new homes around six months later.
