All the Croydon roadworks and road closure planned for September and October
Just so you all know what you’ve got to look forward to.
Roadworks are the bane of every driver’s life, so it’s handy to know about them before they happen so you can plan to avoid the extra long queues and traffic.
Thankfully, Croydon Council publishes a list of all the upcoming road closures so that residents can check out the roadworks coming to a street near you.
We have taken the liberty to condense their list slightly into more manageable chunks so that you don’t have to get stuck unnecessarily.
The below list is in chronological order and takes into account all of the planned closures and roadworks to date (September 16) for the rest of September and October throughout the borough.
