There will be an official closure of part of Herne Hill Road from 23:00 hrs on Friday 11 August 2023 until 05:00 hrs on Monday 14 August 2023.
This is to allow the removal of the enormous tower crane that has been used for the construction of Peabody’s Higgs Yard mixed-use development at Loughborough Junction.
The Higg’s Yard project is billed as offering ‘106 stylish 1 and 2 bedroom apartments in the beating heart of SE24, within walking distance of trendy Brixton and fashionable Herne Hill’.
‘Beating heart’, eh?
During this weekend (11-14 August), Herne Hill Road will be closed between the junction with Padfield Road and Coldharbour Lane. Traffic diversions will be set up.
We can probably expect to see puzzled drivers and diverted traffic spilling over into other streets. But in mid-August, it might be a quiet weekend anyway.
