Hammersmith Flyover Works Close to Finish
Road to be closed westbound every night till Thursday August 13
Refurbishment of the Hammersmith Flyover is coming to an end after nearly two years of round-the-clock repair work.
This week, the westbound lane of the flyover will be closed overnight from tonight, Monday August 10 till Thursday August 13, from 10.30pm till 5am each night.
This is to allow for final strengthening work to be completed, as part of the Road Modernisation Plan. Delays are expected on the A4 and drivers are advised to use the A40. Buses may be diverted or stop short of their destination.
During the closure, traffic will be diverted beneath the flyover or onto the A40 Western Avenue, with the diversion route clearly signed.
Since October 2013, Transport for London has been working to strengthen 11 of the flyover's 16 spans after the first five were repaired in 2012.
There is a warning that buses may be delayed, diverted, or stop short of their final destination.
