Hi Forum of all knowledge

Does anyone know why Union Street at Flat Iron Square is being closed for 4 months? I can't find anything on Google and the local business haven't been told but signage seems to have just gone up.

Any information would be helpful.

Yes. Saw signs yesterday. Seems odd. Could see no info.

I tried asking the team setting up the barriers, they seemed espeically nervous to give me a clear explanation and were quick to pass me on to their manager as he turned up in his van. The guy might look cool in his wraparound shades but as a way of communicating to people it's very off-putting, I think he passed it off as engineering works but I found his manner less than friendly.

Why am I not surprised. It is going to be closed for months. Least they could do is tell us.!

I think it has to do with the Thameslink project, so will be contractors working for Network Rail. You can search an online register of roadworks on this website -
