Upper Street and Islington Green/Essex Road, Islington

Last reviewed:

We have started work in your area to reline our water pipes along Upper Street and Islington Green/Essex Road. The upgrade to the pipes is urgently needed following the burst in December. The new relined pipes are much stronger and will ensure that we provide a top quality service.

Working hours

Our working hours are Monday to Friday from 8am to 6pm and Saturday from 8am to 1pm.

What's the impact?

We will need to close some lanes and restrict some parking bays. We will also have bus stop suspensions and diversions in place. We’ll clearly mark it out at the time and we’ll make sure our work doesn’t stop you from getting home. There may also be an increase in noise. We’ll do our best to keep disruption to an absolute minimum.

For our first stage of work on Essex Road and Islington Green, please be aware that bus services will be temporarily diverted on Essex Road, northbound only. We will also have some bus stop closures northbound on Essex Road between the junction of Canonbury Road and Upper Street, please see on street signage for alternative bus stops.

How long will it take?

Our work started on Monday 17 April for approximately 5 months. Our first stage of work will be on Essex Road, Islington Green and Upper Street from the junction of Colebrooke Road and Liverpool Road. We will be working here from Monday 17 April for approximately 9 weeks.

Following this we will start our next stage of work along Upper Street and Islington High Street. We will keep you updated as we progress with our work.
