More traffic misery for drivers in Wembley
Work is being carried out to replace old water pipes
Drivers face being stuck in heavy traffic around Wembley over the next couple of weeks as a result of water works taking place.
Veolia Water is replacing water mains at the junction of Harrow Road, High Road and Wembley Hill Road.
It means gridlock and massive jams are expected until the work is finished on December 9.
Paul Mooney, project manager, said: ““We appreciate that this is a very busy area and we are doing everything we can to minimise disruption.
“Our priority is to get the work completed as quickly and safely as possible, therefore three-way traffic lights are in place until this section of the work is completed.
“We would like to thank our customers for their patience and understanding during this work and apologise for any delays experienced in their journeys.”

Veolia Water is investing �1.2m to replace 5 kilometres of water pipes in the Wembley this year.
Some of the water pipes in the area are more than 60 years old and are being replaced with durable plastic pipes to help reduce the chance of them cracking and bursting, which can cause unexpected interruptions to people’s water supply.
