Transport for London (TfL) has again postponed planned works on the M4/A4 that were due to take place on the first two full weekends of 2023.

If the closures had proceeded, they would have required the M4 to be closed eastbound from Junction 2 to Hogarth Roundabout on the A4 between 11.30pm on Friday 6 January to 5am on Monday 9 January and again at the same times the following weekend which would have led to significant traffic disruption in the Brentford and Chiswick areas.

The closures had earlier been scheduled in December but had to be cancelled due to exceptionally poor weather. It is understood that this time the project has been put back due to planned rail strikes.

The work is to improve the long-term condition of the Cromwell Road Rail Bridge, road and pavements. The bridge carries the A4 Great West Road over a railway line between Chiswick Roundabout and Hogarth Roundabout.

There are now no weekday restrictions on the A4 Great West Road

Final works will be carried out over two weekends and are expected to take place in late January or early February.

When scheduled they will take place from 23:30 on Friday to 05:00 on Monday and will require full eastbound closure between M4 junction 2 and Hogarth Roundabout and closure of one lane westbound between Hogarth Roundabout and Chiswick Roundabout.

The lifting of access restrictions in the Grove Park area of Chiswick on Saturday 7 January and Saturday 14 January will now no longer take place.

Signed diversion routes will be in place for local traffic.
