Penge High Street re-open at Crystal Palace Park Road

Published Wednesday, 8 March 2017

Penge High Street has been re-opened following an extensive clean-up both yesterday and this morning.

High Street, Penge was closed following an earlier diesel or oil spillage.  The complex clean-up operation has involved laying a combination of Spill dry, an absorbent substance and sand, with these materials then removed.  Jet washing of the entire road surface has continued this morning having commenced yesterday evening, with road drains or gullies also cleaned as part of this process.  The clean has also extended to the side roads.  

The High Street was closed from the junction with Oakfield Road to the junction with Thicket Road, where it meets Crystal Palace Park Road. 

A safety assessment was carried earlier today, with this concluding that the road can be re-opened.
