Wortley Road

The City is reconstructing Wortley Road from Briscoe Street East to Devonshire Avenue to replace and improve the quality and reliability of water, sewer, and road infrastructure. Much of the current infrastructure is made from outdated materials such as vitrified clay and ductile iron and has reached the end of its lifecycle.

Construction started in May 2021 and is anticipated to last until spring/summer 2022.

The Wortley Road project is one of London’s Top 10 construction projects this year identified in the City’s Renew London construction program.
