Disruption can be expected from tomorrow as part of a road is closed for more than half of this year to allow for a building to be demolished.

A notice in this week’s Barnet Borough Times from the London Borough of Barnet states Cricklewood Lane NW2 will be closed to westbound traffic, between its junctions with Elm Grove and the A5 Cricklewood Broadway. In addition, Elm Grove NW2 will be closed at its junction with Cricklewood Lane.

The order comes into force from 8am on Thursday and is expected to last for 32 weeks.

The alternative route for traffic will be via Cricklewood Lane, A41 Hendon Way, A406 North Circular Road and A5 Edgware Road/A5 Cricklewood Broadway, or via A41 Hendon Way, A598 Finchley Road, A406 North Circular Road, A5 Edgware Road/A5 Cricklewood Broadway and Yew Grove.

Two other roads are set to be affected by much shorter closures from today to allow for crane works.

The Bishops Avenue N2 at its junction with Byron Drive will be shut from 8am today for two days so a tower crane can be dismantled.

Traffic should instead use Aylmer Road, Archway Road, Bakers Lane, North Hill, Hampstead Lane or vice versa.

A second option is Hampstead Lane, Spaniards Road, North End Way, North End Road, Falloden Way and Lyttleton Road.

Other crane works mean part of Ranulf Road will be closed from 8am on Monday, with work expected to take a week to complete.

One diversion will be via Lyndale, A41 Hendon Way and Hocroft Road.

Alternatively, traffic can use Hocroft Road, A41 Hendon Way, Cricklewood Lane, Lichfield Road, Westbere Road, Mill Lane, Fortune Green Road, Ardwick Road and Ranulf Road.

Other roadworks coming up over the next week include the closure of the cycle lane along part of Church Lane N2 from 8am Sunday for two days for gas mains replacement, while Douglas Mews at its junction with Cricklewood Lane will be closed on Tuesday for the maintenance of telecommunications equipment.
