Transport for London (TfL) has confirmed it is postponing a planned closure of the South Circular (A205) that was due to take place this weekend (17 June – 19 June) until the following weekend.
A project to waterproof a railway bridge requires the closure of Chiswick High Road between Chiswick Roundabout and Kew Bridge.
There will now be 24 hour closure of one southbound lane between Kew Bridge Road and Lionel Road South until 24 June.
Then from the evening of Friday 24 June until the morning of Monday 27 June there will be a full closure of the A205 Chiswick High Road between Kew Bridge and Chiswick Roundabout. A national train strike is due to take place on Saturday 25 June with services likely to be affected the following day.
If the work is not completed over this weekend there will be an additional full road closure from 10pm on 1 July to 5am on 4 July.
Diversions are to operate with traffic approaching from the west being diverted up Ealing Road to the Great West Road (A4). Traffic intending to cross Kew Bridge is to be diverted over Chiswick Bridge via Hogarth Roundabout and Burlington Lane.
The south side of the pavement along the A205 Chiswick High Road – between Aitman Drive and Wellesley Road – will be closed until 27 June.
‘Kew Bridge Station’ (Stop X) will be suspended from 24 to 27 June. Signage will direct customers to a temporary bus stop outside number 54 Kew Bridge Road.
TfL says that no noisy works will be done after 10pm on any occasion and signed diversions will be in place throughout.
